This mysterious stone was even found in mythological texts where the great Cupid is said to sport an Amethyst ring. Rediscovered in the 1600s by a Spanish Colonizer as a gift of marriage for marrying an Ayoreo princess named Anahí (Indigenous peoples of Bolivia and Paraguay) this stone has deep and ancestral ties to the Earth and up until the 18th century it was considered a cardinal gemstone of royalty until the discovery of large deposits in Brazil.Suggested Ritual:
