Can any of you explain what the difference is in "Jet Black" and "Obsidian Black"?

I see so many descriptions...is there a single place where I can see all of the colors offered in 2007? These descriptions from various dealers is confusing for sure.

Thanks!

Based on the attached brochure it doesn't look like the 2007 5 series has an Obsidian Black. It looks like there is a Jet Black and Black Saphire. The former is a deep glossy black and the later is a black metallic.

Thanks Grateful1! Yeah, I noticed that it is actually called Black Sapphire, sorry about that. The guy trying to sell me an 07 now has been calling it "Obsidian"...no surprise since he has been wrong about everything else so far.

Thanks.
