What a beautiful mushroom! And its name is just amazing; Amethyst Deceiver – Laccaria amethystina. Amethyst because of its purple colour, and deceiver because it changes so much as it ages, so that it becomes difficult to identify it. This one is obviously in the bloom of its life because I had no problem looking it up! In Dutch they are called “red cabbage mushroom”, also a very good name.
