Blue is the colour of light between violet and green on the visible spectrum. It includes indigo and ultramarine, closer to violet; pure blue, without any mixture of other colours; and Cyan, which is midway on the spectrum between blue and green. Blue also can vary in shade; darker shades of blue usually contain some black or grey, while lighter blues contain varying amounts of white. Shades range from the dark blue of ultramarine, cobalt blue, navy blue, and Prussian blue; to the lighter sky blue, azure, and Egyptian blue. Blue-greens include turquoise, teal, and aquamarine. (See Shades of blue) and the List of colours).
Blue pigments were originally made from minerals such as lapis lazuli and azurite, and blue dyes were made from plants; usually woad in Europe, and Indigofera tinctoria, or True indigo, in Asia and Africa. Today almost blue pigments and dyes are made by the chemical industry.
