About the Double Hexagon Palette

The Hex Code Palette uses an abbreviated hexadecimal number sequence, hex code, to create different hex triplet hues by combining Red "R", Green "G" and Blue "B" bytes: RRGGBB - Each color's hex code (hue) is displayed inside an html table cell.

Hexadecimal notation or base 16, uses the standard base 10 digits; 0 through 9, as well as using the letters A through F as "digits" too. It is possible to create over sixteen million color variations with hex, which is 256 cubed or 16,777,216.

There are 216 unique colors shown on the three double hexagon wheel palettes, adjacent cells have the next higher or lower sequential three-byte hex triplet. Some colors are repeated throughout the three palettes for aesthetics, some triplets are displayed just once.

These 216 hues were once known as web safe colors, each color is a combination three, two-digit hex numbers: 00, 33, 66, 99, CC and FF.
