It appears that the base color for the insert is Red colored ceramic to which the blue is added last. I would think that dependent on the lighting the penetration of the blue could go into the red causing the red color to mix with the blue causing the apparent violet color frequently seen.

If it was a case of just bleeding, then one colour, the original, should be a clear red or blue and then just the added colour will be unclear/mixed. But as both blue and red are off at times I think both colours had to be changed before they are mixed just to get this close.
