Fun fact;  since ancient times Tyrian purple (also known as royal purple, imperial purple or imperial dye) is a purple-red dye, which is extracted from sea snails. It was first produced by the ancient Phoenicians as early as 1570 BC. It took as many as 250,000 mollusks to yield just one ounce of usable dye. Clothes made from the dye were exorbitantly expensive—a pound of purple wool cost more than most people earned in a year—so they naturally became a status symbol of the rich and powerful. The struggle was real for poor purple lovers. Fast forward to the 1850’s~scientist (and snail hugger) William Perkin stumbled upon inventing the first synthetic dye, that being purple. The masses could now indulge in wearing the once unachievable colour and the snails rejoiced anointing Perkin their King.
