Amethyst (#9966CC) is a somewhat saturated and fairly neutral and balanced shade of violet commonly associated with quick (79.7% match), casual (79.5% match), and intense (78.5% match). When Amethyst is combined with Gold, it appears casual and bright. When joined with Pigment Red, the mood becomes more colorful. When Amethyst is added to Zaffre, it evokes dynamic and intense feelings. When paired with its complementary color #99CC66, a darker, warmer, and more saturated variant of the shade "Pistachio", it can convey innocent or striking emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #CC9965 (a shade of "Camel") and #65CC99 (a shade of "Medium Aquamarine"), the resulting palette becomes harder and cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "elegant" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a pleasant and amusing atmosphere.
