Wavelengths of light

Been looking on the internet for a long time, trying to find wavelengths of light. The sites I've seen have the wavelengths of the basic colours (red, blue, green etc.). I'm looking for the wavelengths of intermediate colours, (pink, aquamarine, turquoise etc.). Is it possible to find a colour wheel or something that would give the wavelength? Help much appreciated

sorry, no such wavelength …

the only wavelengths are for the colours in the spectrum …

everything else is a mixture of different wavelengths (a "symphony of colour") :wink:
