Halogens make coloured compounds.

Halogens ,the elements of group 17, show colour because of a simple phenomenon.

The electrons present in the outermost shell absorb energy in the visible spectrum for the excitation of electrons from lower energy shell to the higher energy shell. as they are absorbing light from the visible spectrum thus they show the corresponding colour.
