Earning the title of darkest color thanks to its total absorption of light is none other than black. Similarly to white, black is an achromatic color (a color without a hue) and is one with a long history of use and importance that extends into modern day.

Alongside white, black is one of the first recorded colors used in art, the pigment created by paleolithic who used charcoal, burnt bones, or various crushed minerals.

Throughout much of history, black has been a symbol of evil, (such as the Greek mythology underworld), mourning, sadness, and darkness. However, in Ancient Egypt, the color had positive connotations of protection and fertility

Black went through many shifts in meaning, application, and perception from era to era and culture to culture. Eventually the color was revolutionised and given a prominent standing in the world of fashion, quickly becoming a symbol of elegance and simplicity.
