Happy Monday! Two words because I missed last week. The second word for today was posted a long while back but it's such a beautiful word, now that there's more traffic in the community I felt it needed a second go!
From the Latin ianthinus meaning violet-blue.
From the Latin calēre meaning to be warm.
"The flame from the Bunsen burner flickered in shades of ianthine and the incalescent liquid in the test-tube suspended above finally began to bubble."
Love Tahlia, who would like to know: how would everybody feel if I colour-themed my posts for every second Monday or so? It's a theme I've been considering for a while now as obscure colour words are always a favourite of mine.
