Abstract: The pigment variation is specific features among microalgae. The paper aim to analyze cyanobacterial extracts of different sources of Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. The main object here is the importance of the blue green algae especially because of the pigments present in this class of algae. It is characterized by their specific Phycobilin pigments, also other pigments such as Chlorophylls and Carotenoides are found. Pigments are present in all living matter and provide attractive colours and play basic roles in the development of organisms. This paper presents the information about the natural pigments of cyanobacteria and how they can be extracted and identified using different procedures and spectrophotometry. It emphasizes that the principal algal pigments are Phycobilins, Chlorophylls and Carotenoids.
