I prefer a light gray so my eye usually skims over the information but it's still readable if necessary. Take a look at sub-sub-section 2.1.6 [ofTeXShopTips-0.7.5.pd <https://herbs.github.io/Files/TeXShopTips-0.7.5.pdf.zip>] for an example of the syntax coloring I use. If you like it you can download it from my new site, <https://herbs.github.io <https://herbs.github.io/>>. The site mentioned in that document will go away on October 3, 2016.

When the ColorIndex box on a source document is checked, the color I get on \index expressions is pink (perhaps a magenta). Not sure where that came from!

In any case, for a book-length project consisting of some 40 mainmatter source files, being able to find \index items quickly by means of coloring is invaluable. Having to turn ColorIndex back on each time I open a file gets to be a real annoyance!
