As a result, the light colors with the highest frequency will have the highest temperature. We know from the visible spectrum that violet glows the brightest and blue glows the coolest. Violet light may occasionally shine at temperatures of approximately 71,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Blue light is coldest at only about 10 degrees above absolute zero.
Thus, purple is hotter than blue, because it contains more red light and less blue light. Red heaters are not unusual in homes or businesses; they usually take the form of electric candles or flaming logs on fireplaces or wood stoves. These items produce very low frequencies of light that are hot to the touch. The higher frequency light from lamps and headlights makes them feel cooler than their environment might otherwise be. The color green is cool by comparison, as it contains about half as much red light as blue light.
The human eye is most sensitive to red light, and so it can see objects that other colors cannot. This is why blood looks red, even though it is mostly made up of cells which emit blue and green light. The brain knows how to combine these different colors into one whole image, so we don't need all of our senses to function properly.
It is useful to know that colors correspond to different wavelengths of light, and so they can be used to measure temperatures. The wavelength of red light is long, while the wavelengths of blue and green are short.
As is true for all types of light, its application may be observed in fire or when an item is heated up. A fire will first glow red, which is the lowest temperature of light waves. If the fire is kept burning, it will eventually turn green, then yellow, and finally white, the highest temperature.
So, blue fire would have to be colder than red fire to show up on the visible spectrum. However, as we've seen, there are other colors present in flame photographs that cannot be seen by the human eye. These include ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths. So, while red fire is the hottest color, blue fire could be far cooler!
In fact, there are certain materials that emit blue flames when burned. These include magnesium, lithium, sodium, and potassium. The reason for this is that each element has a characteristic color when burned. Magnesium burns with a bright blue-white flame, while potassium burns with a bright orange flame.
Because blue fire is so rare, it's usually not done for decoration. However, if you were to burn some sodium or lithium lights during Halloween, they might give off a cool blue glow!
The higher the frequency, the greater the amount of energy transported, and the hotter the light. Violet is the hue with the highest frequency in the visible spectrum of EM radiation—ROYGBIV. As a result, violet is the hue of the most intense light. The reason colors appear cooler or warmer depending on how they are made up of different frequencies of light is called color temperature. Color temperatures range from cool colors (violet, blue, green) to warm colors (red, orange). The sun's color is about 5500 degrees K (5000 degrees C), which is very hot. Light from the sun is white because it contains all the colors of the spectrum.
At night, when no sunlight is reaching the earth, we see colors as they really are: only red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Because these colors do not contain any blue component, they are said to be "bluer" than red. This is why the sky at night is usually described as "black" or "dark blue-black."
Bruised apples turn brown because the color components of purple, blue, and green light are broken down first, leaving only red light behind. That's why bruises look like they do under blacklight radio therapy or ultraviolet light: both types of light have frequencies that match those responsible for coloring lights.
So blue is "hotter" than red in the sense that something that is so hot that it glows blue is much, much hotter than something that glows red. Because red is the lowest frequency of visible light, it is the first color we perceive when something is heated. Blue is next in line and green is last. White heat is heat so high that it can only be produced by a fire.
Blue colors are also known as cold colors because they indicate a low temperature. If you were to touch a candle made of wax colored deep blue, you would feel its warmth but not burn yourself. On the other hand, if you touched a candle made of red-colored wax, you would feel its heat and might even get hurt because it would be so hot.
In conclusion, blue is said to be colder than red because it indicates a low temperature. This means that anything colored blue is going to be cold, while something colored red is going to be hot.

Violet flame is a name given to the blue-white color of burning carbon dioxide in air at an extremely high temperature, usually in a laboratory setting. The color comes from chemical compounds called phosphors that emit light when exposed to heat or radiation. Violet flame can be seen in volcanic eruptions and during some types of fireworks displays.
The heat generated by violet flames is about 39,500 degrees Fahrenheit (21,700 degrees Celsius). Because flame temperatures are measured with thermometers that break down at such high levels, scientists generally estimate the heat of violet flames using calculations based on known properties of fire. Scientists believe that pure carbon dioxide burns in vacuo (in air), which means it would burn with a bright white-blue flame that does not contain any oxygen, because there is no fuel to burn with oxygen. However, due to absorption of light wavelengths by atmospheric gases, combustion of carbon dioxide in air produces a flame that appears purple or black. The heat produced by this combustion is estimated to be about 3,950 degrees Fahrenheit (2,200 degrees Celsius)
Carbon Dioxide (CO2).
Even while violet light has greater energy, its bandwidth is small: 24 nm, whereas red light has a bandwidth that is nearly double that of violet light: 53 nm. Red light is thus hotter than violet light.
Blue flames indicate temperatures ranging from 2,300 to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Blue flames burn hotter than orange flames, reaching temperatures of 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. They burn up faster and to higher temperatures than other types of flames, resulting in a blue flame.
The color of the flame is due to molecules in the air that scatter light blue. These same molecules also contribute to the feeling of coldness or warmth by passing along or blocking heat-sensitive nerve fibers called nociceptors. The more molecules there are in the air, the brighter the flame and the greater the sensation of coolness or warmth.
Flames have three main colors: red, white, and blue. Red flames are usually caused by burning materials like gasoline or wood. White flames are usually caused by material such as paper or cotton that doesn't burn completely, while blue flames are only caused by certain substances such as hydrogen or oxygen. Flames can be of any color beyond these three because many chemicals have their own unique molecular structure which causes them to scatter light in different ways. For example, green flames result when carbon monoxide mixes with oxygen; purple flames result from mixing nitric oxide with oxygen; and yellow flames result from mixing hydrocarbons with oxygen.
People sometimes see colored lights in their vision when looking at a bright fire.
