Ever since I started stoichiometry I have had a silly idea that 6.02 * 1023 and
1.66 * 10-24 were opposites, so I tried it out:

1 amu g = (1 g) / (1 mol)
amu = mol-1
amu*mol = 1

Is this correct?

Basically that's the way a.m.u. is defined. Just pay attention to units, mole and Avogadro's number - while related - are not the same thing.
