The stop-color attribute indicates what color to use at a gradient stop.

Note: With respect to gradients, SVG treats the transparent keyword differently than CSS. SVG does not calculate gradients in pre-multiplied space, so transparent really means transparent black. So, specifying a stop-color with the value transparent is equivalent to specifying a stop-color with the value black and a stop-opacity with the value 0.

Note: As a presentation attribute, stop-color can be used as a CSS property.

As a presentation attribute, it can be applied to any element but it has effect only on the following element: <stop>
