I think you mean TiAlCN. The company cited by K.C. shows it their brochure.

Thanks for noticing that. I didn't dig into the website. The color depends on the chemistry, but also the thickness of the coatings and how thier processed. TiCN and TiAlCN are siblings and the levels of the components changes slightly... which may, or may not change the color.
