According to this, magenta ain’t a color. Put it in the Dissapointment Corner with not-a-planet Pluto. I never really liked magenta anyway.
A beam of white light is made up of all the colours in the spectrum. The range extends from red through to violet, with orange, yellow, green and blue in between. But there is one colour that is notable by its absence. Pink (or magenta, to use its official name) simply isn’t there. But if pink isn’t in the light spectrum, how come we can see it?
