This sort of comes from my related question, but only sort of. Are there any areas on Earth with purplish-colored soil? The purple tint would come from some mineral, perhaps deposited by rivers or volcanic activity.
I don't know exactly what mineral. The only purple mineral I know for sure is amethyst. It does not hafta be pure purple. A purple-brown mix would be just fine.
The line "purple mountains majesty" comes to mind here, but that appears to be just a reddish/purplish sunset reflecting off of brown mountains. I'm looking for something real in the soil/rock, not an illusion.
Purplish sand and purplish rock are okay too. Really whatever the land is, that's what I'm asking for purple color.
One more semi-reference: Apollo 17 actually discovered orange soil on the Moon.
