Different colored rings

In 0.96 ringed planets are now very diverse and there are large rings, small rings, etc. They're mostly all different, but would it be possible to have different colored rings? Rings are typically formed from debris and particulates from massive collisions, couldn't a massive collision with an asteroid that happened to be filled with different colored substances be possible? What different colors could we have? I think this would be something neat to have as a rare chance to happen and find. cool

It'd be cool to see some sort of silver or gold colored rings, or rings with streaks of these colors in them.

All of you are talking about colorful rings while this planet is just sitting in space not giving a damn.

Well here is what Saturn looks like in Space Engine. It has a little bit of colors in it's rings, but nothing that would look like a cartoon. So a small degree of color variation may be realistic. I have to agree with Talisman that the procedural rings are a bit dark right now.

Has anyone looked into this at all, aside from the troll image posted above? Saturn's rings are moderately gold-silverish but all procedural planet's rings are very dark if not black.

HarbingerDawn is right, what you must be seeing the rings where light is not hitting it.
The time gas giants would have very dark rings is if: Their too far away from its parent star, the rings are made of carbon (Coal in some terms), or the rings don't have enough material to reflect light like a solid would (Uranus & Neptune's case).
Add on to the reasons if it compels you to.
