EXTRASPECTRAL HUE

typically consists of a variety of wavelengths, thereby creating a mixture, and as a result, not falling along the visible light spectrum. An example of an extraspectral hue is the colour purple, which is a mixture of long and shorter wavelengths of light.

EXTRASPECTRAL HUE: "Purple and white are typical examples of an extra spectral hue; otherwise known as a non spectral hue in some art contexts."
