Violet (color)

Violet is the color of amethyst, lavender and beautyberries. It takes its name from the violet flower.

In the color wheel historically used by painters, it is located between blue and purple. Violet light is at the higher end of the visible spectrum, with a wavelength ~380-450 nanometers (in experiments under special conditions, people have so far seen to 310 nm). Light with a shorter wavelength than violet but longer than X-rays and gamma rays is called ultraviolet.

In Europe and the United States, violet is the color most commonly associated with the extravagant, the individualist, ambiguity, the unconventional, and the artificial. In China violet is associated with elegance and nobility; in Japan with purity, beauty and lucidity, and as a given name 菫 (sumire, violet) can be written 紫花 "purple, flower", 純麗 "purity, lovely", 澄玲 "lucidity, sound of jewels", 澄麗 "lucidity, lovely". In Hinduism and Buddhism violet is associated with the Crown Chakra.
