Colors! Please!


Help! I have a sudden craving/need/yen for strange and bizarre color words!

All I can think of are puce, chartreuse and periwinkle. This is insufficient, I need truly obscure words. (note: not for any real purpose. just a random thought/spark of an idea... it will involve Ikku)

What's the one really strange word for black? Ebony's not the one I'm going for... I swear there's another one, one that's ACTUALLY obscure...

Crayola has a bleck crayon named Outer Space, there are a lot of weird colors at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Crayola_crayon_colors

I have also found synonyms of black include sable, jet, and soot.

Even more colors can be found at http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Wiktionary_Appendix:Colours

Periwinkle is a fun color to say especially because it's the name of a mollusk.

Wisteria is also a fun color to say.

As well as, now that I got a new pack of pencils...
Burnt Umber
Ochre
Burnt Carmine
Vermillion
Ultramarine

Also, perhaps the wierd black color you're looking for is "Ivory." Derwent makes a pencil called "Ivory Black" so that's what I'm basing this off of.
