And "M-x list-faces-display RET" will show all the faces known to Emacs 
as of the time you invoke that command.  You can then customize each face 
by clicking on it.

Actually, this is not true.  Emacs typically supports a much larger set 
of colors, it just shows some subset of it (the only exception being a 
character-mode terminal, where it shows the exact full set of colors it 
supports).  You can have more colors by using the X "#RGB" or similar 

To see where do the colors shown by list-colors-display come from, look 
into term/x-win.el (or term/w32-win.el for Windows).
