BINARY HUE

n. a hue which appears to be a color mixture of two uniquely-different hues. Not necessarily a product of color mixing, however, the composition of orange for instance appears to be a mix of both red and yellow.

BINARY HUE: "The variation in binary hue such as orange, blue-green, or purple is made even more vivid through illumination and color temperature."
