GREAT UNUSUAL STRANGE WEIRD COLOR NAMES THAT YOU PROBABLY DON'T KNOW

I saw an article recently that listed several unusual color names - I had never heard of most of them.  I decided to do a little more research and found a ton more! I knew several of them: Titian (a warm red), Vermilion (bright orange-red), and Verdigris (greenish-blue poisonous pigment on copper) and Malachite (a green mineral) but not the others.

Here's a test - without looking them up (!) - try to guess what the colors are -reply to the post and next post I will add the colors and descriptions.
