Amethyst and the color purple


I just opened the September issue of  House Beautiful and discovered the color amethyst  in their Everywhere We Look column.

Turns out that the folks in Pompei in the first century also liked the color amethyst. This photo is of a wall from Pompei (now in the Met):

Also in the same issue, there was an interesting Q & A article called “Confessions of a House Painter” on page 56.  His answers were spot on!
