As the name of a color, violet is synonymous with a bluish purple,when the word "purple" is used in the common English language sense of any color between blue and red, not including either blue or red.

Since Isaac Newton listed violet as his name for thecolor of the short-wavelength end of the visiblespectrum (approximately 380–450 nm), when both of the names purple and violetare used within the same system, violet represents colors nearer toblue, while purple is used for colors more nearly between violet and redon what is called in color theory the lineof purples.

Objects reflecting only light wavelengths in theaforementioned “violet range” would appear very dark, because human vision isrelatively insensitive to those wavelengths, but the color of a monochromaticlight source emitting only those wavelengths can be roughly approximated by thecolor shown below as electric violet. A pale tint of violet is lavender.

Purple is a general term for the range of shades of color occurring betweenred and blue. In color theory, a 'purple' is defined as any non-spectral colorbetween violet and red. The spectral color violet is not a purple.

In art, purple is the color on the color wheel between magenta and violet andits tints and shades. This color, electric purple, is shown below.

Violet is a spectral color (approximately 380–420 nm), of a shorterwavelength than blue, while purple is a combination of red and blue or violetlight. The purples are colors that are not spectral colors – purples areextra-spectral colors. In fact, purple was not present on Newton's color wheel(which went directly from violet to red), though it is on modern ones, betweenred and violet. There is no such thing as the "wavelength of purplelight"; it only exists as a combination.

Pure violet cannot be reproduced by a Red-Green-Blue (RGB) color system, butit can be approximated by mixing blue and red. The resulting color has the samehue but a lower saturation than pure violet.

One interesting psychophysical feature of the two colors that can be used toseparate them is their appearance with increase of light intensity. Violet, aslight intensity increases, appears to take on a far more blue hue as a resultof what is known as the Bezold-Brücke shift. The same increase in blueness isnot noted in purples.

Indigo

 

Color                          cyclesper second                         Wavelength

Indigo                        652.000.000.000.000                  4800Angstroms

                                                                                       420 and 450 nm

                                                                                       440-410Hz

Frequency 715–665 THz

Indigo is a color named after the blue dye derived from the plant Indigoferatinctoria and related species. The color is placed on the electromagneticspectrum between about 420 and 450 nm in wavelength, placing it between blueand violet. Although traditionally considered one of seven divisions of the rainbowor the optical spectrum, modern color scientists do not usually recognizeindigo as a separate division and generally classify wavelengths shorter thanabout 450 nm as violet. Optical scientists Hardy and Perrin list indigo asbetween 446 and 464 nm wavelength.

 

India is believed to be the oldest center of indigo dyeing in the Old World.It was a primary supplier of indigo dye, derived from the plant Indigoferatinctoria, to Europe as early as the Greco-Roman era. The association ofIndia with indigo is reflected in the Greek word for the 'dye,' which was indikon(ινδικόν). The Romans used the term indicum, which passed into Italiandialect and eventually into English as the word indigo. The country of ElSalvador has been the biggest producer of indigo.

The same indigo dye is contained in the woad plant, Isatis tinctoria,for a long time the main source of blue dye in Europe. Woad was replaced bytrue indigo as trade routes opened up, and both are now largely replaced bysynthetic dyes.

Though the word indigo has existed in English since the 13th century, it maynever have been a common part of the basic color-naming system. The mental mapsof English speakers appear to contain just six basic spectral colors: red,orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.

It promotesdeep concentration during times of introspection and meditation, helping youachieve deeper levels of consciousness.

Indigo loves rituals and traditions,religion and the institutional system, conforming to things that have worked inthe past while planning for the future.

Indigo stimulates right brain orcreative activity and helps with spatial skills. It is a dramatic colorrelating to the world of the theater, which, during times of stress becomes thedrama queen, making a mountain out of a molehill!

Green is a color, the perception ofwhich is evoked by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with awavelength of roughly 520-570-nm.

Several minerals have a green color,including the emerald, which is colored green by its chromium content. Animalssuch as frogs, lizards, and other reptiles and amphibians, fish, insects, andbirds, appear green because of a mixture of layers of blue and green coloringon their skin.

This has led to similar campaigns in advertising, ascompanies have sold green, or environmentally friendly, products.

The word green comes from the OldEnglish word grene, or, in its older form, groeni. This adjective is closelyrelated to the Old English verb growan (to grow) and goes back into WesternGermanic and Scandinavian languages.

Italso is combined with other color names to increase specificity, as inblue-green, or with objects, as in emerald green. Green is also used todescribe jealousy and envy, as well as anyone young, inexperienced, or gullible(probably by analogy to unripe, i.e. unready or immature, fruit).
