90 Types of Violet

 , November 26, 2019
Violet is a range of colors corresponding to wavelengths of light from 380 to 450 nanometers and related shades, tints and tinges. Violet light is the shortest wavelength of visible light with anything shorter, namely ultraviolet light, being invisible to the eye. Of all the spectral colors, violet is the least popular in design, art, fashion and architecture. It is associated with royalty, extravagance, individualism and the unconventional, artificial and ambiguous. This is perhaps due to the fact that violet is a relatively rare color in nature that is associated with flowers and other rarities such as minerals. However, the night sky is often perceived as having a slight violet tinge. Violet is often confused with purple, a completely different color that is made by mixing blue and red. In fact, display technologies based on RGB don't display violet at all but instead simulate it with purple. The following are common types of violet color.

Notes

The web color violet isn't a true violet color but is rather a tint of pink. This is due to the remarkable history of web colors whereby many of them were introduced by programmers of an operating system known as X11 who had no background in colorimetry, color theory or art.
