History and Healing Properties of Amethyst:

Amethyst, renowned for its stunning purple hue, has a history steeped in legend and lore. The name "amethyst" comes from the Greek word "amethystos," meaning "not intoxicated," as the stone was believed to protect against drunkenness. Ancient Greeks and Romans would often adorn their drinking vessels with amethyst to prevent inebriation.
Historically, amethyst has been highly valued by many cultures. It was a favorite gemstone of ancient Egyptian royalty and was used in the crowns and regalia of European monarchs. The stone is primarily found in Brazil, Zambia, and Uruguay, with deposits also in South Korea, Russia, and the United States.

In terms of healing properties, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, symbolizing spiritual awareness, inner peace, and healing. It is believed to calm the mind, reduce stress, and promote restful sleep. Amethyst’s soothing energy is thought to balance mood swings, dispel anger, fear, and anxiety, and alleviate sadness and grief, making it a powerful stone for emotional and spiritual well-being.
History of Goddess Althea:

In Greek mythology, Althea is a name associated with nurturing and healing, though she is not a widely known goddess. Althea was the mother of Meleager, a hero of the Calydonian Boar Hunt. Her name, derived from the Greek word "althos," means "healer," reflecting her nurturing and protective qualities.

In various cultural stories, Althea embodies the gentle yet powerful nature of a guardian and healer, often depicted as a figure of grace and wisdom. She symbolizes the nurturing aspect of the divine, providing care and protection to those in need.

Wearing the Althea ring, with its enchanting amethyst, invokes the spirit of this nurturing goddess and the regal energy of a fairy princess. It offers a connection to the timeless beauty and mystical power of the stone, perfect for those who seek to embrace both royal elegance and magical enchantment.
