The first time I read about purple gold was in a Swiss magazine called Arum in 1984.

If I remember correctly, they had made some with the correct proportions on a space craft in micro gravity, and it formed a amazing crystal like formation, which was the subject of the article. ( I stand to be corrected)

Fast forward to 1994, and I then approached a company called Mintek in South Africa.
I worked with Professor Elma van der Lingen and she had access to the argon induction melting machine needed to melt the two very different metals together.]
