** There is Irrigo, the unremembered color, which causes people to forget things the longer they are exposed to it, and soaks into you like radiation after a while. The body may start growing bone over the eyesockets if the exposure is particularly severe. Of the colors, it's perhaps the most dangerous, as prolonged exposure can utterly destroy a person, leaving a wandering husk that doesn't know anything and cannot learn more. Memories will come back for lesser exposure, but something will always be forever lost.

Occasionally used as BrainBleach by the extremely traumatized, and commonly by spies who need to forget certain bits of critical data on a regular basis.

** Apocyan, the blue of memory, usually found on particularly glowy and valuable bits of Unterzee coral. Not quite as special as the rest, and possibly the most common of the lot.
** Cosmogone, the color of remembered sunlight. Strangely enough, it seems to encourage plentiful fungus growth. Usually found in dreams, and in cinders that have been soaking in celestial radiations for too long. It also attracts things from [[MirrorMonster beyond the mirror]], good and bad, which is why those who venture there as a hobby wear glasses of this color.
** Viric, the green of shallow sleep and the light from mirrors. Which turns slightly unnerving when you know most mirrors IRL have a green tinge. Still, let's just say mirrors in the Neath are dangerous, and have links with dreams

For some reason, it also seems to encourage the growth of regular, non-fungal vegetables, though this effect is noted to thoroughly spook those who witness it.
