On the Verge with Violet

From the deepest purples to the softest lavenders and mauves, the violet ray invokes appreciation for earth’s unconventional surprises.

Striking and exotic, violet hints at the mysteries of the universe.

With its bubble raft facing the sky and its head facing the ocean depths this snail floats along upside down feasting on jellyfish and hydrozoans.

Some birds, butterflies and insects have violet aspects.

Violet sometimes even appears in the human world.

In addition, due to the difficulty in reproducing lasting violet hues from natural sources the color became associated with those of the highest nobility, wealth, and position who wore it proudly.

Sometimes darker purples were achieved by combining red and blue pigments. An ethereal color, violet is also associated with wisdom, bravery, peace, and spirituality. It’s often seen in the branding of alternative, holistic, and “new age” practices as well as artistic endeavors.
