Color of Sound: Violet
Violet is the color of imagination and spirituality. It stimulates the imagination and inspires high ideals...It helps people who are looking for the meaning of life and spiritual fulfillment. Violet is the color of light at the short wavelength end of the visible spectrum – between blue and invisible ultraviolet. It is one of the seven colors that Isaac Newton labeled when dividing the spectrum of visible light in 1672.
Violet and purple have a long history of association with royalty. In Chinese painting, the color violet represents the "unity transcending the duality of “Yin and Yang" and "the ultimate harmony of the universe.” In Hinduism and Buddhism, violet is associated with the Crown Chakra, the highest energy center of being. It is often referred to as a thousand-petaled lotus and relates to pure consciousness.
