L*a*b VALUES

Series of coordinates obtained from a Colorimeter that describes any color as a set of three values. The “L” coordinate designates a value from light to dark, the “a” coordinate designates a value from red to green and the “b” coordinate designates a value from blue to yellow. These three numbers position any color in the 3 axis area and allows a comparison to be made to match any particular color standard.
