Colour Facts For June 2020

Colour Facts
  1. Nautre Image

    If you have noticed your friends or family take over social media to share photographs of stunning sunsets in the past month, you are not alone. Such twilight hues can be spotted during the pre-monsoon season, according to meteorologists. This stunning colour combination of orange and red adorning the sky is commonly known as Buddha Rays or in more scientific-terms, crepuscular rays. It occurs when there is moisture left in the air after a thunderstorm in surrounding areas. There is a refraction of the sun’s rays over the sky and the moisture or water particles act like a prism. Next time you witness this spectacle, you will know the science behind the picturesque sky!

  2. Egyptian Blue

    Egyptian Blue, also known as calcium copper silicate, is one of the first artificial pigments in human history. Its typical blue colour comes from one of its main components, copper- that ranges from a dark to light hue, depending on its composition. In Egyptian belief, blue was a very important colour since it was considered as the colour of the heavens and associated with water and the Nile. Egyptian Blue was used widely in paintings, tombs and even mummies’ coffins. In the 19th century, Egyptian Blue was rediscovered. The excavations in Pompeii revealed that many wall paintings had used the colour.
