The gemstone name Amethyst is derived from a Greek prefix, which is to negate something. The prefix is just the letter "A" and so putting the a before another word negates what follows. The rest of the name is from the Greek word methystos, which is about being intoxicated or drunk. So the name Amethyst essential means that to wear this stone will negate or prevent intoxication or drunkenness.
