Quenya Colors

A small list of the main colors, with a separate list of hair/fur colors. Not quite a Pantone catalog, but enough to describe the common colors. Alongside the word luine for “blue”, Quenya also has the word luinince “bluish”; you could derive similar words from the other color names.
