"individual" is just OWL parlance for "instance"
In this here:

> <rdf:Description rdf:about="#bbfc12">
>   <ex:property>value</ex:property>
> </rdf:Description>

If ex:property is a datatype property, "value" is s'thing concrete like
"43" or "yttrium".

If ex:property is an "object property" or "role", then value, the "role
filler", is an abstract instance/individual, like
"http://example.org/semantic/powder.rdf#d1"
