12 slightly different shades of orange.

(According to wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category… Also note that these are not going to be exact, but only the general idea.)

Coral

The various shades of the color coral are representations of the wide range of colors of the class of cnidarians also called corals. The complementary color of coral is teal. Coral and coral pink are popular colors in interior design to give a calm feeling of warmth to a room. In some sects of Hinduism, coral red instead of red is shown as being the color which represents the first (muladhara) chakra in Hindu philosophy.

Safety Orange

Safety orange (also known as blaze orange, vivid orange, Caltrans orange, or Omaha orange) is a hue. Its deeper, more saturated shade is known as international orange. Safety orange is used to set objects apart from their surroundings, particularly in complementary contrast to the azure color of the sky (azure is the complementary color of orange, and therefore there is a very strong contrast between the two colors). The color is commonly used for high-visibility clothing to be worn while hunting.

Gamboge

Gamboge is a rather transparent dark mustard yellow pigment.

Gamboge is most often extracted by tapping resin from various species of evergreen trees of the family
Guttiferae. The trees must be ten years old before they are tapped. The resin is extracted by making spiral incisions in the bark, and by breaking off leaves and shoots and letting the milky yellow resinous gum drip out. The resulting latex is collected in hollow bamboo canes. After the resin is congealed, the bamboo is broken away and large rods of raw gamboge remain.

Pink-Orange

Pink orange is a mix of the colors pink and orange. It also resembles a "flesh tone" that painters sometimes try to make. This can be very difficult but when achieved, works very well.

Peach-Orange

Peach is a color that combines pink and orange colors. This color is named for the pale color of the peach fruit. Like the color apricot, the color called peach is paler than most actual peach fruits and seems to have been formulated (like the color apricot) primarily to create a pastel palette of colors for interior design. Peach can also be described as pale orange.

Amber

mber is an orange-yellow color that got its name from the material known as amber. Due to this, amber can refer not to one but to a series of shades of orange, since the natural material varies from nearly yellow when newer to orange or reddish-orange when older. Amber is a pure chroma color on the color wheel halfway between orange and yellow. It is a color that is 75% yellow and 25% red.

Orange-Peel

Displayed at right is the actual color of the outer skin of a typical orange. This color is called orange peel. It is the same color as the fruit for which it was named. In contrast to blue or red, this color is well determined.
