named after the flower--see [[ violet (plant)]]) refers to any of a group of reddish [[ blue]] or bluish [[ purple]] [[ color]] s. In particular, it refers to the color of [[ light]] at the short-[[ wavelength]] end of the [[ optical spectrum|visible spectrum]].
True spectral violet cannot be reproduced on a computer screen. You can see the color by looking at the reflection of a fluorescent tube in a [[compact disc]].

The sensation of violet caused by short-wavelength light appears somewhat [[purple]], as if it contained long (red) wavelengths. The cause for this is that the long-wavelength ("red") receptors in the human [[retina]] are sensitive to the wavelengths in the violet region as well as the longer wavelengths in the red region of the spectrum. Violet is therefore perceived as a stimulus to both red and blue cones.
