A selection on different LED colours: (shown from 2 different angles)
Listing the wavelength & name (in both cases if its known .. colored text is only approximate)
647nm - What I'll call 'deep red' (an older dimmer red than the modern ones. but its also a more true red)
620-630nm - Red
600-610nm - Orange
580-595 - Yellow
565-575 - Lime (was originally just called 'Green' - before they made true green LEDs)
520/530-535nm - Green
504-510nm - OceanGreen (or Traffic-Light Green) (many times incorrectly called 'Cyan' on sites like eBay)
480-490nm - Cyan (a truly awesome color that sadly I can't find anymore)
455-460/460-470nm - Blue
?420nm? - Magenta (not sure of the true wavelength..I believe its actually a Blue/Red mix? (many times incorrectly called 'Pink' .. pink is a totally different color (its not shown here)))
405-410nm - UV/Blacklight (many times incorrectly called 'Purple' .. Purple is a different color (its not shown here))

Thanks for sharing, this is a really cool post! I didn't know almost any of this info until now! Five star beautiful, artistic photo too!

Is there ACTUALLY such a thing as true cyan, not the one you mention is mistakenly called cyan?

I've always liked the LED multicolor Christmas lights, with their vivid colors. The blue and green do dim out in long term use though.

@ace100w120v:
Yep there was such a thing as true cyan.. I bought a 100-pack of them off eBay back in 2007 & used it to 'make' ] a set of xmas lights (of all the sets I've done, that one is by far my favorite) ... if I had only known they would stop making them, I woulda sprung for the 1000pk

@merc:
I didn't notice that until you pointed it out...yeah it kinda does

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

@rjluna2: LOL I don't see that term very often anymore..
ROYGBIV...or
Red
Orange
Yellow
Green
Blue
Indigo
Violet
Ofcourse that misses some of the colors...

oh and when organizing colored items (whatever the items may be) they should always ALWAYS be put in this order.
I think of it as "organizing the colors the way a computer would"

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

There is a similar display of LEDs, at the National Museum of Science of Haifa

Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I found an eBay listing with 480nm cyan LEDs. They are 1w PCB mount though.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/20pcs-Golden-LED-1W-3W-cyan-blue-480nm-490nm-LED-emitter-diodes-lamps-pink-LED-/252074146672
I can imagine how awesome they would look in solar powered garden lights...

Great photo! The pink one doesn't actually have a wavelength value like all the others, it is a multi wavelength fluorescent LED. These use a blue GaN die of about 450nm coated with CASN or SCASN red nitride phosphor that emits very broad orange-red-IR spectrum. The mixture of these can produce non-spectral colours along the so-called line of purples of the chromaticity space.

I see I missed some replies back in 2016 & 2017 sometimes I think it doesn't always send those subscribed image emails...
But... Thanks guys! I think I've added a couple colors since I took this pic too

Interesting on the magenta, James (I'd only heard they had red phosphor!). Now makes sense why they didn't give a wavelength.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
