Ratios within wave C orange are: wave 3 purple is 2.54 longer than equality with wave 1 purple, and wave 5 purple is just 0.16 short of equality with wave 1 purple.

Ratios within wave 5 purple are: wave 3 aqua is 1.38 short of 1.618 the length of wave 1 aqua, and wave 5 aqua is 0.72 short of equality with wave 1 aqua.
