Not generally found in nature, Purple is almost hard to find in use even now. When first introduced, purple had become a symbol of royalty, as only the very wealthy could afford it, purple being many times more expensive than gold. A combination of blue and red, purple can be both romantic and mysterious. It is also the colour of morning in Thailand.

Purple is perceived generally as a feminine colour. Given to either side of its blue and red combination, it possessed the duality of both cool and warm capabilities. Lighter shades speak more on friendliness than the dark shades and their speaking on wealth.
