Saturation

A colour's purity of hue; its intensity. A pure hue has the highest saturation. A brilliant colour is strongly saturated, and also very light in value. A deep colour is also highly saturated, but has little lightness. A pale colour is little saturated and has great lightness. Value and saturation are not constantly related.  (Artlex.com)
