In the KJV Bible, the word 'blue' occurs fifty times, all of which are in the Old Testament. The Hebrew word translated as this color is tekeleth (Strong's Concordance #H8504), which is a reference to the animal from which the dye is obtained. Its use in Scripture lends itself to symbolically meaning the following.
God (Exodus 24:10, 25:3, 38:18, Numbers 4:6 - 12, 2Chronicles 2:7, Ezekiel 1:26, etc.)
Royalty (Esther 1:6, Ezekiel 23:6, Jeremiah 10:9)
Riches (Ezekiel 27:7, 24)
Service to God and godly living (Exodus 28:6, 8, 13, 31, Numbers 15:38 - 40, Esther 8:15)

According to the Oxford dictionary of Jewish religion: "ḤILLAZON" Conchiferous marine animal, the blue blood of which was used for dying the blue cord of the tsitsit.
Tsitsit: fringes attached to the four corners of garments. Numbers 15.37–41 commands that a blue thread be added to.
So here is a ancient description of not only the color blue, but a label of its color in relation to something we can visually see today as being blue.
Not sure if this will be relevant.
