Fluorescent colors are a type of bright color that are so saturated that they feel as if they might continue to glow without a light source. The term is inspired by actual fluorescence whereby a material emits light after a period of absorbing light energy. This occurs naturally in minerals and organisms including varieties of fish, coral, jellyfish, amphibians, butterflies, parrots and plants. In some cases, paints and pigments include chemicals that make them fluorescent such that they glow in the dark. In other cases, a color is perceived as being fluorescent simply because it is so bright. The following colors are illustrative examples of the latter.
