Indigo color has one of the longest wave lengths in the visible color spectrum. It is a combination of deep blue and violet and holds the attributes of both these colors.
The word in its present spelling originated about the middle of the 17th century to refer to the blue Indian dye derived from the blue powder of the plant indigofera.
I think so many people are drawn to this color because we have an innate desire to wear the color that’s associated with activating our third eye. Deep down in our souls we know that the activation of our third eye will help us move forward spiritually.
Colorists tell us that if indigo is your favorite color, you are honest, compassionate and understanding; and integrity is extremely important to you. For example, the Virgin Mary is often depicted wearing indigo or blue clothing.

  1. Love the inclusion of the cat picture – Never thought of a black cat as with indigo highlights, but it’s true and they do! Lovely! πŸ™‚

    1. The same for me! πŸ™‚ Not quite blue or purple, indigo can feel classic, modern and a little bit mysterious – all at once.

  2. There’s a word for this… it’s called LOVE!

  3. I really enjoyed that, I didn’t see indigo that eat at all before-nicely put together! And I hate to be nitpicky but I thought I may as well say-indigo has one of the shortest wavelengths in the visible lights spectrum-it’s really close to UV which has an even shorter wavelength. Sorry!
