Fellow from Riga, maybe, kind of blue (6)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'kind of blue' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'fellow from riga maybe' is the wordplay.
'fellow' becomes 'co' (eg a co-worker is a fellow worker).
'from' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'riga maybe' becomes 'balt' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for cobalt that I've seen before include "Deep blue pigment" , "Magnetic metal" , "Metal giving its name to type of deep blue" , "Metallic element, Co" , "Silvery-white metal used in alloys" .)
