That pretty much covers the spectrum (except for white, which isn’t really used in that context). Everything else’s color is described as “resembling” something with a natural color for which Klingon has no word.

This is how many English colour words are derived as well — being the name of the thing that is that colour: orange (fruit), violet, rose, pink, indigo (flowers), olive (fruit), gold (metal), teal (bird), chartreuse (drink)… Klingon really isn’t that different IMO.
