The Greek word "amethystos" may be translated as "not drunken", from Greek a-, "not" + methustos, "intoxicated". Amethyst was considered to be a strong antidote against drunkenness, which is why wine goblets were often carved from it.
In his poem "L'Amethyste, ou les Amours de Bacchus et d'Amethyste" (Amethyst or the loves of Bacchus and Amethyste), the French poet Remy Belleau invented a myth in which Bacchus, the god of intoxication, of wine, and grapes was pursuing a maiden named Amethyste, who refused his affections. Amethyste prayed to the gods to remain chaste, a prayer which the chaste goddess Diana answered, transforming her into a white stone. Humbled by Amethyste's desire to remain chaste, Bacchus poured wine over the stone as an offering, dyeing the crystals purple. (Wikipedia Source).

What is Karen Hill Tribe Silver?
Karen Hill Tribe Silver is a high purity silver (97%-99%) that will not tarnish as readily as sterling silver (92.5%). These fair trade beads are handcrafted by Karen Hill Tribe artisans in Thailand.

The Karen Hill Tribe is the largest of the 6 principal hill tribes of Thailand. Historically the Karen tribe relied primarily on opium cultivation as their main source of income. In the early 1960's, the King & Queen of Thailand decided to help the Karen people develop an alternative to growing opium as their main source of income by teaching them a a new skill. Silversmiths were brought in to teach Karen farmers the art of jewelry and bead making using fine silver. These techniques are now passed down to each generation, enabling them to use their craft to sustain the tribe as a whole.
