border-inline-color

The border-inline-color CSS property defines the color of the logical inline borders of an element, which maps to a physical border color depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. It corresponds to the border-top-color and border-bottom-color, or border-right-color and border-left-color property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

border-inline-color: yellow;
border-inline-color: #F5F6F7;

The border color in the other dimension can be set with border-block-color which sets border-block-start-color, and border-block-end-color.
