Oldies but goodies - Amethyst colors

This week the JAC Oldies but Goodies Challenge was about amethysts. Not everyone of us works with stones like that, but our rules are not that strict, so we changed that to colors of the amethyst.
English Wikipedia tells me that "according to surveys in Europe and the U.S., purple is the color most often associated with royalty, magic, mystery and piety".

It also tells me that the name amethyst comes from the Greek meaning "not intoxicated" which reminded me of the story our Latin teacher told us about amethyst embellished goblets being used in the olden days because people thought that way they wouldn't get drunk from wine.
I don't drink wine myself, but somehow I have the feeling that doesn't really work ;-)
