Purple Ice

"Purple refers to any of a variety of colors with hue between red and blue.[1][2]

Purple is closely associated with violet. In optics, purple and violet refer to colors that look similar, but purples are mixtures of red light and blue or violet light,[3][4] whereas violets are spectral colors (of single wavelengths of light). In common usage, both refer to colors that are between red and blue in hue, with purples closer to red and violets closer to blue.[5][6] Similarly, in the traditional painters' color wheel, purple and violet are both placed between red and blue, with purple closer to red.

Purple has long been associated with royalty, originally because Phoenician purple dye was extremely expensive in antiquity.[7] Purple was the color worn by Roman magistrates; it became the imperial color worn by the rulers of the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire, and later by Roman Catholic bishops. Similarly in Japan, the color is traditionally associated with the emperor and aristocracy.[8]

According to contemporary surveys in Europe and the United States, purple is the color most often associated with royalty, magic, mystery, and piety."

Purple is a range of hues of color between red and blue on the color wheel. There are actually many colors between red and blue and purple is only one of them.

50 Shades of Purple "A unique definition of purple color does not exist. While every mix of blue and red can qualify, we can, at least, say blue and red are mandatory components. We can add a bit of yellow as well, so all possible brownish tones are candidates too. If we further complicate with an addition of white or black, life becomes really colorful!"
