Purple Dye – The first use of the color purple was as early as 1570 BC. It was so expensive to make that purple dyed textiles became a status symbols and laws restricted their use. It was expensive because it was made from a sea snail. The dye is a secretion from the gland of one of several predatory sea snails found in the Mediterranean Sea. The secretion is expelled when it is being attacked. The dye can be collected by either “milking” the snails or destructively crushing the snail. It took twelve thousand snails to yield no more than 1.4 gram of pure dye, enough to colour the trim of a single garment.”
