where the hell this "gold" came from?

Question

another issue concerning colors
according Rebrickable and BrickLink databases, "1x1 round plate" have 2 golden colors: chrome gold and pearl gold.
chrome gold is very shinny and is not in the image, the one in the right side is pearl gold... what kind of golden color might be the one on the left side?
any help will be much appreciated... thanks again

They are both Pearl Gold.  To summarize this BrickLink Discussion- Officially 1x1 round plates only ever came in one color of Pearl Gold. Inconsistency in Pearl Gold occurred from batch to batch in the early days.  Once LEGO reformulated Pearl Gold to take care of the consistency problem, it became the darker color that you have on the left.

that explains why I have several examples of different tones of the same color.. in red I have 3 different part tones, according the age of the part, and some of the tones are quite different from the usual color
thanks, Thea...
