Did you know it is impossible to think about nothing? Have you ever tried to sleep at night by erasing your thoughts? If you are inside a room shielded from sound, does that mean you will hear nothing? If you have ever tried this you will know that your active mind will create a sound that does not exist. It may be a hum or a high-pitched frequency.
Lastly, close your eyes. What do you see? First you will see nothing. Then you will say you see blackness. Really? Keep your eyes closed. If I concentrate, I can see every color in the spectrum. Eventually, an entire screen of deep purple consumes the other colors and I will see a wall of violet.
Purple has long been considered emotional and passionate, and has been associated with mystery and imagination. No wonder it always lingers in my subconscious.
There is a small area in the electromagnetic spectrum where humans can see light. Purple and indigo is that even smaller area of color that we experience just before we fall into the abyss of blackness. You may say it is the final color of all colors. I say it is the color that leads us on a journey of discovery.
Purple is the mixture of red and blue, combining the energy of red with the cool, calming expansiveness of blue. Like a beautiful melody can soothe a savage beast, I am always captivated when the evening sky paints a portrait of purple, splotched by a red sun. It is dreamy, thought-provoking, and the color combination has always evoked inspiration in my brain.
Purple was chosen as the brand color of Gallery of Diamonds. A little purple goes a long way and can be intimidating if engulfed in it. However, a dash of the color used strategically can draw a person’s eye toward it and fill the mind within innovation and wonder. Since a business must be passionate to be successful, purple was an easy color choice for our diamond company.
