I'm fairly sure I was at art college with a tetrachromad. Eva was her name. She saw intense halos of colour around things, like afterimages (I remember her describing this in the Odeon, which had a mustard curtain, and she was amazed I couldn't see the fantastic purple halo around the woman in front of us.)

Interestingly, her mother had extraordinary eyes with dual pupils - sort of shaped like dumbells or figure of eights, vertically in the eye.

ALso, your colour words aren't so strange when you grew up painting with a 1920s box of watercolours...

my partner coral sees 'greenred', intensely, often in fields of grass, particularly near sunset. she also sees vivid pinks and purples, invisible to others, in grey clouds and stone
