I've always liked the mini series version. Personally I thought it fitted the description of the books. I mean blue skin? That doesn't enter my imagination unless I've missed something in FH's description.

Agreed

Maybe because the spice is blue?

Isn't the spice orange/amber?

I liked the min-series version except for the tail. I think a Nav would just have shrivled deformed legs.

The spice gas is orange;
The spice essence is blue;
And the spice's color after blow I don't remember.
The singular multiplicity of this universe draws my deepest attention. It is a thing of ultimate beauty.

The spice in Leto's horde was blue.

But the gas was orange, which is what the Naviagotrs were emerged in. I think that the Mininavigator was the best.

That picutre just sickens me.

The spice was blue indeed after reading the passage in GEoD ... it must be the cinnamon smell that confused my "memory" of its colour.

I get that too, I always picture it as red/orange rusty coloured and then have to kick myself.

To be fair, it's not something that gets mentioned often.

I think there's another scene somewhere where a spiceblow is described as violet.

I also thought it was reddish at first, blue seems odd, but i remember reading somewhere that there is a blue colored element in it? :|

When the Bene Gesserits have a meeting with Leto II in GEoD, am I right?

There's a cobalt atom or two in there.

I remember...I read that in the DE...a part of the heme group would explain the color, something about copper elements turning blue when heated by the heat of the sun...

Thats how I remember it. Blue for the essence, Orange for the Gas. I can't remember the colour of a spice blow.

However i did find this

"Great bins of melange lay all around in a gigantic room cut from native rock and illuminated by glowglobes of an ancient design with arabesques of metal scrollwork upon them. The spice had glowed radiant blue in the dim silver light" God Emperor of Dune

"the leprous blotches of violet sand where a spiceblow had erupted." Children of Dune.

I've always thought the spice was orange, but this might be because of the movie. But it seems as if the spice is Violet when it is first formed. Then over time it "ripens" to a Blue colour. Turning orange, perhaps something in the heating process turns the colour to orange. Or it might have to do with the concentration of the Gas as well as the tempreature of it.

I entirely agree with you.

But you have to see this: Spice have blue color over silver light.

People, the natural color of the things depends of the light's color that is being reflected by the thing. So, if you are over a light of a Giant Red Star, your skin color won't be the same. :wink:

The star that Arrakis orbits, Canopis, is described as being silver in the sky. So blue would be it's natural color.

Besides, what's the difference between white light and silver light? :?
