It's All About Purple

nhlfanNhlfan on 03/06/2009

Purple is the color of royalty -- and the reason for that may be that the dye substance for Tyrian purple was harvested from the hypobranchial gland of a sea snail. A labor-intensive and no doubt less-than-fun job, the fruits of which were available only to the elite class. In fact, according to fourth-century BC historian Theopompus, "Purple for dyes fetched its weight in silver at Colophon." (If you didn't know that, now you do.) Everything here has to do with purple. All you have to do is fill in the blank and have fun. Good luck!
