T OR F?: Blue is known as a ‘royal’ color because back when they relied only on natural dyes, blue came from sea snails and was the hardest dye to extract and produce so only royals could afford it. Thus the color "royal blue" was formed.

My daughter and I made natural dyes as part of a science experiment, so I know it's not blue.
