Shade of credibility (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

red

Here is my best explanation:

'shade' is the definition.

'of credibility' is the subsidiary indication.

'of' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'red' is hidden in the letters of 'credibility'.

(Other definitions for red that I've seen before include "The colour of communism", "Colour for a blusher", "Colour of blood", "Bordeaux claret, for instance", "Florid", "- - poker: Kniphofia", "Blushing", "Become angry and see it", "Bloodshot" and "Type of wine".)
