A fiercely intense color, ultramarine is the most vibrant of deep deep blues. I'd watched a documentary a while back on dyes in India and they did a little feature on one of the most beautiful ultramarine blue I've ever seen! It was in powder form, so intense, it just burns into my eye sockets yet completely natural, from a rock I believe, that they had to painstakingly extract. Often overlooked, this color can actually provide a burst of energy in a calming manner, which means solving problems in a smooth, calm & collected manner. ;+)
