Colours reminescent of a black opal. The colours are actually stronger in Lightroom 4, what am I doing wrong when converting to jpeg?

The colour problem you mention may be because when converting to jpeg for the web, the process probably involves an automatic conversion from the original colour space (RGB?) to sRGB. I find that this almost inevitably dulls the colour of the original. So, after making the conversion I compare the result with the original and if necessary increase the vibrance and saturation of the jpg. It will always be necessary if the original has fairly bright colours. Inevitable with Autumn colours, as I have found myself. Hope this may help.
