  1. > Thing changes color depending on the color of light hitting it

    I mean I get what you mean but that title leaves much to be desired

  2. My toilet has the same property. In red light it appears red, but shine blue light on it instead and it becomes blue. Truly marvelous.

  3. Should have said that it changes colour under florescent or incandescent lighting to avoid the sarcastic comments! I believe it’s a feature of its tight wavelength range absorption peaks and the slight yellowish/white light difference between the light sources that aren’t as drastically different to the human eye as this effect is.
