Is there any evidence that colors are the result of micro-physical properties? That, for example, all blue things have a certain structure (texture?) in common that accounts for their being blue.

The answer to this may be yes and no. Yes, colors are or are caused by micro-properties of the surface of objects, but apparently quite different micro-structures may correspond to the same perceived color.
