    ancient Egyptians.  They had all the colors. Did they invent them.  No. they concentrated the colors out of ground up colored clays, or berries, or bugs.  Copper oxides ore makes greens and blues and they had lots of copper.  Most blue came from ground up pigments of crushed rocks into a fine powder.  You can go out into the yard and find some rocks with orange in them (iron ore= rust).  Did you invent orange or did you just find and grind up the orange color into a powder to add water & seed oils to it to make a paint.?

    I think ancient Egyptians were credited with a shade of deep blue by crushing beetles

    Which blue do you mean? Sky? Aqua? Turquoise? Indigo? Royal? Navy? Other?  In any event, the pigment was likely invented early enough that we have no records. Remember that the Picts painted their bellies blue.

    Colors were NOT invented.  The colors are rays of the sun.
