Day 12-Orchid


Orchid was a catalog color from 1991 to 2005.  Do these dates look familiar?  Is it a coincidence that Amethyst was produced in those same years?   No, Orchid is cased Amethyst.  I think there is a pattern developing here.  If there is no clear layer on the bottom of your Orchid water bottle, then it is not Orchid.  If there is a clear layer on the bottom, it may still NOT be Orchid.  That is a story for a later date.

Blog Update; November 22, 2013  A new formulation of Amethyst was introduced in 2012 and the cased version of this new Amethyst is still called Orchid.
