Spectrum Colors

Spectrum color wavelength intervals, eyeballed by yours truly.

    The second band from bottom says Indigo but I perceive it as blue.  The colors labeled aqua and blue appear virtually identical to me.  I have been told I'm partially color blind.

    According to Wikipedia, the color called “indigo” by Isaac Newton is what we would call “blue,” and I kept that tradition in my labelling. I chose a cerulean hue to label “blue.” However, it is the green and aqua areas that look similar to me.


    I took an on-line color test a few weeks ago, which  means both that I’m not colorblind and that my monitor is fairly decent.
