In color perception Invariant hues (or invariable hues [1]) are perceived hues of monochromatic light that do not change with intensity, that do not show the Bezold–Brücke shift, that is, do not change with changes in illumination.

There are four invariant hues: blue, green, yellow, and red&nbsp The four invariant hues are:

  • 478nm (blue)
  • 510nm (green) [2][3]
  • 578nm (yellow)
  • 493c (red; i.e. complementary wavelength to 493nm)[4]
