Iridescent Gold

What chemical is purple in the bottle and gold upon touching air?

I remember using it in Grade 12 biology, and I think we were staining cells with it. It was incredibly vivid purple or indigo in the bottle and when it hit skin (as my lab partner found out, whoops) but when just a little was spilled on the counter top or dribbled down the side of the bottle it turned a remarkable iridescent gold colour.

I remember the teacher referred to it as "(something) Violet" or "(something) Purple". Any ideas?

Cell staining is usually done with crystal violet, also called gentian violet.
