Purple LED speech

At last, a purple LED that's actually purple and not an UV one palmed off as such. A extremely hard to find component, very similar to the now obsolete ETG 5AX420-15. A pleasant colour and good brightness at 15mA. Better colour than the Lumex SSL-LX5093VC. Brill.

A perfect, non-UV purple

Very bright; lovely color. The color tends a little toward pink, but is exactly as described - purple, not ultra-violet. I have bought many "purple" LEDs only to receive them and find they are UV. Super-Bright is the only place I have found this color, and I am happy to pay the price for the perfect color.

A little on the pink side

Not bad, but to me, the light looks more pink than violet. Also, it looks a little like separate red and blue elements combined rather than one true colour.

Rare purple LEDs

Normally purple/violet is mix of blue and red diodes. If this is a mix, I can't tell. These look straight violet to me. I shave the heads down and string these together to make a laser sword blade. Nice!
