changing  around  the  equator,  value  changing  from  light  to  dark  from  the  north  to 
the  south  pole,  and  choma  varying  on  the  inside  of  the  sphere  towards  the  neutral 
grey  of  the  north-south  axis.  The  Munsell  system  is  still  widely  used  today,  for 
example  to  define  skin  and  hair  colors  for  forensic  pathology,  for  matching  soil 
colors,  or  for  the  selection  of  shades  for  dental  restorations.
