    A quote from the Vanson guide, Pantone 221

    "Caution: Many of Van Son’s colours are made using
    coloured pigments not found in the PANTONE Basic
    Colours. For example, Van Son Bordeaux Red is made from
    a unique pigment having spectral reflection features that
    cannot be exactly duplicated using other pigments. Although
    PANTONE 221 is about as close as you can get to Bordeaux,
    using the PANTONE formulas, it will not match under all
    light sources. If you match it in daylight, it will not be a
    very good match under artificial light and vice versa. This
    peculiarity of colours to match under one light but not
    under another is called METAMERISM."
