The Secret of Colors Documentary ㊙️ | Colors l1 l2 l3
The secret of color - The beauty of colors in nature can only be seen in the light of the sun: the different colors emerge when the light divides.
If the sunlight breaks on the raindrop, the colorful miracle of the rainbow is created. No color is random - not the green of leaves, not the red of blood, not the black and white of space.
The film shows the great richness of color in our Nature from the sunrise to the blaze of color of the plant blossoms to the proverbial color change of the chameleons, particularly pronounced during the mating season.Monty Christal

The secret of the color red 🍎 | Colors l1 l2 l3
Starting with the hue red is appropriate as it seems to be one of the most loved colors in the background.
It is quite possibly one of the most well-researched shades in the range, and while the data is unstable, it is believed to be the color with the most quantifiable impact on our lives.
A traditional example of how red may affect our habits is in sports activities.
In particular, if you look at UK football leagues since the Second World War, teams that have used red during matches have statistically performed better than they should.
Comparable research studies have been conducted at the Olympic Games and in martial arts with comparable results.
It is very common in the earth's crust as well as around the world.
It is so common that one anthropologist has claimed that both regular pins of human progress are toolmaking and the use of hematite.
However, hematite was eventually hit by fashion when the People pursuing lighter variations of the color red.
cochineal is another red pigment that comes from a scale insect with the exact same name.
It is commonly found in South and Central America, hence it was widely used in both Aztec and Incan societies.
It took about 70.000 of these insects to get an extra pound of raw cochineal paint.
This pigment will today still used in food and also in cosmetics under the E120 label, which means there's a good chance your strawberry yoghurt was made from insects!
The secret of the color purple 💜 | Colors l1 l2 l3
People have long associated the shade of purple with aristocracy. This is especially the case when you look at the beginning of a color called Tyrian Purple.
It is native to two Mediterranean mussel areas, produced by a pale gland in their bodies.
When this gland is squeezed or squeezed, it produces a single drop of clear, garlic-scented liquid, which, when exposed to the sunlight is exposed, changes from green to blue and then to a deep red-purple purple.
It took 250.000 shellfish to produce one ounce of paint, and those shellfish were also tracked to the end.
This dye was popular throughout the ancient world, and because it was so expensive and difficult to find, it was immediately associated with power and nobility.
There were also regulations that determined who could or could not put on the shadow.
There is a well-known story where Emperor Nero attended a concert and identified a woman with Tyrian Purple. She was of the wrong class, so he bought her out of the room, flogged and took her lands because he viewed her clothing as an act of usurping his power.
The color Purple eventually declined due to the shortage of shellfish used to make the paint, as well as the political chaos in the Mediterranean region where it was made.
It wasn't until the middle of the 19th century that purple came back into fashion after an accidental discovery. A younger Scientist named William Henry Perkin had attempted to create an artificial variation of quinine (which was then used to fight malaria).
While attempting to develop synthetic quinine, the researcher accidentally created a purple sludge. Instead of discarding the amount of work, he added a little Water and dipped a towel in it too.
He ended up accidentally getting a colorfast synthetic purple color
This started a whole transformation of creating synthetic dyes that really didn't have to kill thousands of countless bugs or shellfish.
The secret of the color green 📗 | Colors l1 l2 l3
Although green is almost ubiquitous in nature, traditionally producing a green dye has been extremely difficult.
In 1775, a Swedish researcher named Wilhelm Scheele developed an artificial pigment that he called Scheele's Green.
There was a large market for the pigment and as it was relatively cheap it was regularly used in textiles, wallpaper, artificial flowers and so on
This green eco-friendly pigment was derived from a compound copper arsenite that is incredibly toxic — a piece of Scheele's green wallpaper just a few inches long had enough arsenic to eliminate two adults.
It has been reported that Scheele's most famous target may have been Napoleon. The French leader had high levels of arsenic in his system when he died.
Despite this, hair samples after his death showed that he had his whole live long elevated arsenic levels in his blood.
While his green wallpaper probably didn't really eliminate him, it couldn't really have been good for his overall well-being.

The secret of the color blue 🔵 | Colors l1 l2 l3
Blue is just one of the most well-known colors worldwide, but until the 14th century it was not nearly as precious.
Only with the rise of Christianity and the cult of the Virgin Mary did blue become a trend in the west.
Around this moment, the Virgin Mary became a more important Christian symbol, and she was usually depicted wearing blue bathrobes.
The shade of blue eventually became associated with Mary and gained prominence.
Mary's bathrobes were usually colored with a blue pigment called ultramarine.
Ultramarine is made from a semi-precious stone called lapis lazuli, which is found primarily in mines in northeastern Afghanistan.
You doubt if you really hear your inner voice
- You want more security in your perception
- You want to strengthen the connection to yourself
- You want to train your fine intuition
Ultramarine is an attractive deep dark blue that almost resembles the night sky.
In modern society we often tend to think of blue as related to Children and also to consider pink as associated with women.
However, if you go back a century and fifty percent, it was pretty much the other way around.
Blue was considered a feminine shade due to its association with the Virgin Mary, while pink was considered a lighter shade of red and a particularly masculine shade.
The secret of the color black 🖤 | Colors l1 l2 l3
Black is a complex shade that comes in multiple shades, although we don't talk about it all the time think.
We have many different words for white, but we don't have the right vocabulary to discuss the intricacies of black.
However, there is one type of black that stands out from the rest: Vantablack.
It's an acronym for vertically aligned carbon nanotube selections, and technically it's not actually a color at all.
Rather, it is a material that absorbs far more light than anything else in the world.
The linkage is made up of vertically aligned carbon fiber tubes and when the light hits it, rather than bouncing off and also returning straight into our eyes, the light is trapped between these tubes and absorbed.
When you look at it, it's practically like looking at a hole of nothing, since what you're seeing is basically an absence of light.
Cassia St Clair says it was an eerie experience. One scientist linked to the creation of Vantablack even claimed he had received calls from people who had seen it and thought that this creation must be the work of the adversary in some way.
It shows the primitive responses that shadows still have on us, no matter how much they have evolved over time. As Kassia St. Clair says:
“Colors are cultural creations and they change regularly, much like textured panels. Color is not an exact point. It's changing, it's alive, it's constantly being redefined and discussed, that's part of the magic of it!”
