Question What exactly is a violet??

The lady at our bird store told me my baby is a yellow faced violet.
He's a dark purple along his back and light purple on the front.
I've read a few posts on here asking about violets but is all purple a normal colour?? Mum was a lutino and dad was a sea green colour (sorry getting the hang of colours i know thats not the official colour type).
Just out of curiosity to the experts!!

Violet is not an actual base colour. Violet is a colour adding factor which is semi-dominant. It intensifies the base colour in blue series specifically cobalt and skyblues. It is really hard to see in green-based budgies
