Excerpted from Spazrok's Color Module Guide
Color modules can be bought in both the armor and weapon shops. They are runes that you can place in your equipment to change the color. But unlike runes, color mods don't take up rune space in your equipment.
The way color nodes affect armor varies greatly depending on the armor as the parts that can be colored are all different. All armor has some or all of these 5 different sections.
1 - Main. This is the main color of the armor.
2 - Trim. This is the outline of the main color.
3 - Highlights. This is usually a thin line of color that surrounds the Trim.
4 - Feature. This will be small feature pieces on the armor, like symbols etc.
5 - Base. This section cannot be changed, & is the underlying frame of the armour. This is most often a black color, or sometimes these sections will look like leather pads also.
The color nodes are split into 2 catergories.
- A combination of names that will denote the overall color scheme.
- Unique color nodes with their own unique names.
The combination name nodes are made up of a Prefix, then the Secondary color title. The Prefix color will affect the Trim, Highlights, and Feature colors. The Secondary name, of course colors the Main.
The basic colors have a plain (true) and a gem counterpart. For example: Black is true black, while onyx has a luminous, gem-like quality to it. The gem shades are often richer in color but not as bright as the true colors.
Color Module Basic Colors Edit
Amber (orange brown)
Ruby (dark, richer red.)
Sapphire (dark, richer blue)
Emerald (dark, richer green)
Jade (dark green)
Opal (pretty close to white)
Violet (blueish purple)
Citrine (greenish yellow)
Bronze (metallic brown)
Blood (Dark Maroon)
With that said, here are some basic variants that you may see on color mods and what they mean. Keep in mind that a color mod will look different for every piece of armor and that my description is very basic.
Color Module Variations Edit
Ceremonial: The key color with some gold accents.
Sacred: The key color only darker with golden accents.
Auroral: The key color with dark accents.
Luminous: The key color with white and gold accents.
Gleaming: A brighter version of the key color with dark accents.
Radiant: The key color usually with bright gold accents.
Shining: The key color, usually with blue and silver accents.
Brilliant: The key color usually changes to gold depending on the light.
Enchanted: The key color with Silver accents. The key is also usually subdued and pastel in some situations.
All descriptions of these colors come from me placing them on the same piece of armor, please note that colors may change based on the piece you insert them into.
It's also worth noting that most of these colors provide a "chameleon" effect. This means that the color changes depending on the light.

Elite Set Colors Edit
Now, one thing you must understand is that Elite color sets have unique colors on them and, sadly, do not come from color modules. With a little experimentation, I have found that these color modules best imitate the Elite set's original color. (Help complete if you know something that looks similar!)
Cyber Commando: Shining Blue.
Human Commando: Venom or Maelstrom.
Cyber Champion: Sacred Blood.
Human Champion: Scarlet Wrath.
Cyber Berserker: Solar Flare.
Cyber BioEngineer: Irradiated.
Cyber Defender: Maelstrom.
Human Defender: Ceremonial Sapphire.
Elite Weapon Colors Edit
Since you can't change the color of the weapon, why not make your armor match the color of the weapon?
Plasma Rifle: Shining Violet
Slug Rifle: Shining Red
Laser Rifle: Shining Black
Plasma Cannon: Enchanted Sapphire
2H Hammer: Enchanted Sapphire
1H Hammer: Ceremonial Ruby
1H Sword: Ceremonial Diamond

Color Module FAQ Edit
-Ceremonial Onyx/Diamond is the color mod all/most of the Aesir God's have on their armor.
-Elite sets as well as Aesir sets do not have equivalent color modules.
-The level of the color module only effects the price and may or may not effect the luminosity of the color module. (hasn't been proven yet.)
-Elite weapons cannot be modified color-wise.
-Brilliant colors get rid of the headband on "Respirator" helms.
-Face-Hewer of the Jomsvikings (elite 1H sword) can be color modded, unlike most elites.
