← Sky-blue-pink. A colour never before seen?

I don't think it could be the awe would be more powerful than a child walking into a room which is painted in colors s/he didn't know before. But quantity of color is also vital. If you just pick up some small spots of new color, it would just be a peculiar feeling. It's difficult to think of a new color anyway, since the entire spectrum has been mapped, but I would love to see infrared and maybe UV light with my own brain...

Maybe normal people can get the awesome feeling of experiencing new colors after spending a few weeks in a dark bunker, (this wouldn't work in a during a gray autumn season in urban areas).
