The first color was bright pink.

A team of researchers discovered bright pink pigment in rocks taken from deep beneath the Sahara in Africa.

The pigment was dated at 1.1 billion years old, making it the oldest color on geological record.

Artists invented the first pigments which was a combination of soil, animal fat, burnt charcoal, and chalk as early as 40,000 years ago, creating a basic palette of five colors: red, yellow, brown, black, and white.

Black was also one of the first colors used in art.

The Lascaux Cave in France contains drawings of bulls and other animals drawn by paleolithic artists between 18,000 and 17,000 years ago.

They began by using charcoal, and later achieved darker pigments by burning bones or grinding a powder of manganese oxide.

Pantone 448 C is a color in the Pantone color system.

Described as a "drab dark brown" and informally dubbed the "ugliest color in the world", it was selected in 2012 as the color for plain tobacco and cigarette packaging in Australia, after market researchers determined that it was the least attractive color.

YInMn blue is one of the prettiest colors.

YInMn blue is so bright and perfect that it almost doesn't look real.

It's the non-toxic version of the world's most popular favorite color: blue.

Some people are calling this hue the best color in the world.
