Top 10 Colors You’ve Never Heard Of

Colors. We’ve seen them. We’ve had to recite them. We know them. We use them each and every day. You probably know your basic colors such as red, green, blue, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and possibly many more. You may know that the primary colors are red, blue, and yellow and that they can’t be made through the mixing of other colors. You may also know secondary colors, those created by mixing two primary colors, such as purple, green, and orange.

But, there are surely some colors that you’ve never heard of or maybe even seen, thanks to Crayola and the growing popularity of online use of RGB codes as well as Hex codes for layouts and design. Below is a list of colors you may not know exist. You’ve maybe seen them a few times before, but it’s safe to say you don’t know their names.
