Apologies for the triple posting :(
thinking about this, I might revise my chart, to show a gradient fill in RGB, between the min (nm) RGB value and the max (nm) RGB value, take this example of Cyan bin1 and Cyan bin2. This might, in the long run, be a bit more helpful ?
This shows bin 1, fading from wavelength 490nm to 495nm
and for bin2, shows 495nm to 500nm
lowest (min) value at bottom of blade.... This does, sort of, go against what I am trying to achieve, but at least it still shows the potential variance in hue by bin category...

I actually have seen a cyan bin 6 in person...they are a nice minty green color. I used three or four of them last year in some of my Brass Sabers. They actually looked clser to the bin 3 on your color chart.
Thanks for the information, looks like I need to take luminosity values into account as well. I'm some what disappointed to hear that the Cyan bin6 looks closer to bin3.. colour is so open to different perception isnt it.
