Ahh... lovely violet! The color of mystery, of deep dusk, of sweet woodland flowers. Violet is calmly regal where haughty purple demands respect.
Violet lacks the rich, vibrant warmth of purple which lies closer to fiery red on a color wheel. Instead, it's a cooler, quieter color because of it's proximity to calming blue. Violet is the color of the gemstone tanzanite and also of iolite. In fact, the Greek word 'ios' (which gave iolite its name) means violet.
