Magenta, a purple hue in terms of color theory, is a color evoked by light having less power in green wavelengths than in blue/violet and red wavelengths. In light experiments, magenta can be produced by removing the lime-green wavelengths from white light. It is an extra-spectral color, meaning it cannot be generated by a single wavelength of light, being a mixture of red and blue or violet wavelengths.
