Re: Re: HYB: pigments - Crazy & vac inclusions


There are many anthocyanin pigments but briefly they are blue, purple, rose,
brick red and scarlet. Scarlet does not exist in irises and I doubt the
brick red does also (red colours in irises are usually formed by a layer of
rose over a layer of yellow). If you want to think about the rose pigment,
think of the plicata colour in Pink Froth and Rosarita etc, it's not purple.
Also there's the rosy colours like Mallow Dramatic.
