96 Things That Are Black

 , updated on
Black is the color that is perceived with the full absorption of light. This includes things that lack light such as the night or outer space and materials that absorb light. Black is a common color in nature if you consider that space, night and shadow are black. Animals and insects are often black. In some cases, this may act as camouflage, particularly at night. It is common for things to be designed to be black as it is considered an attractive color. For example, black metals and flowers that have been specifically engineered for a black or close-to-black color. Naturally black materials include obsidian, ebony wood and carbonado.
