Hand-held Reflection

Hex colour reference:  #1A467B

This rich, dark blue was one of the original Crayola crayons back in 1903, featuring under two names, Dark Blue and Prussian Blue.  The Dark Blue name was discontinued in 1917, and in 1958 Prussian Blue was renamed to the current term, Midnight Blue.

Referring to the moon-filled sky at midnight, the first recorded use of midnight as a colour term in English was in 1915.
