These hard chrome needles will outlast a standard 15x1 and the PD/titanium needles are even more wear-resistant. 
They are available in sharp or ball point with a hard chrome or  PD/titanium finish.

Regarding Color coding, Janome has their own system.  
The Organ HLx5 have color-coded shanks to identify each size.   Other Organ needles do not have color-coding.
The size number is etched into the shank of each needle.
