Bakelite was most widely produced in white, brown, green and red, but it came in a wide variety of colors, including pink, blue, purple, and amber. Over time some of these can oxidize and completely change color. White becomes yellow. Blue becomes green. Pink becomes orange. Violet becomes brown. Because of this oxidization process, its really rare to find bakelite in those colors, making them more collectible (and expensive).
