Many years ago, I recall reading that it was possible to alloy
gold with aluminium to make a rather spectacular purple metal, the
problem being that the alloy was quite literally unworkable.
More recently, I read a brief note in a UK publication, “Retail
Jeweller”, that a German jeweller had solved this problem and was
now producing purple gold which was referred to as “Amethyst
Gold”… then nothing else. There was one small photograph of a
piece using this material and it looked wonderful. Has anyone out
there got any further
Thanks for your help.
