Believed by crystal collectors to be the stone of St Valentine, Amethyst carries the energy of fire and passion – all good things to fuel creativity in the kitchen. Le Creuset's new Amethyst stoneware range means you can carry that creativity through to the table. Elegant Amethyst in matte finish is Le Creuset's latest exploration in colour. Its cast iron range is now complemented by eight stoneware pieces: square and rectangular heritage dishes, a teapot with infuser, a fluted flan dish and three sizes of mugs (with a coffee press coming soon). The Amethyst stoneware range is now available in all Le Creuset boutique stores and online. Prices range from R130 to R750.
