Can chlorophyll be purple?

Cleaning up the fan leaves 1 week after I flipped to flower [12:12]. I clipped a few and wiping my blades with alcohol and noticed if the chlorophyll dried on the blade or on the cotton swab it looked purple. It looks black in the pictures but it looked purple irl.

I posted a couple weeks ago about purple leaf stems.
Could that be a sign of it being genetic?

I think it’s natural color , not positive .

@JarJar no chlorophyll can not be purple. We see it as green. What’s happening here is you had a plant with high anthocyanin pigments that was blocking out the chlorophyll. The chlorophyll is still there, you’re just seeing the purple color from the anthocyanins.
