Why Are Things Colored?

Color is a microconsciousness. Like our senses of taste and smell, color helps us to understand the world around us. It helps us survive as a species, and appreciate works of art.

But why is the sky blue? Why is fire yellow? What causes the vivid colors in sapphires or emeralds? What do diamonds and rainbows have in common? Is there a connection between fall colors and flamingos? Why are things colored?
