Here is an option to make your required dark shadow show on a dark background. This is done in Illustrator. This is a radial gradient from black to gray behind the blue circle which has an attached dark drop shadow. If there were an actual light source to provide the shadow then there would naturally be some light spill off onto the dark background.

SVG documents can only be in RGB as far as I know. They can be automatically converted to CMYK on export from InDesign, but you can't export to a spot color like that.

Color theory, or atleast its naive implementation, is almost certainly somehow broken. Why? If you are selecting based on a color wheel. Then your entire selection crieria is perdicated on the fact that the color wheel is correct. But you have many different color wheels. Thus many different selections are possible to fullfill the result it just depends on ...

Try (RGB) = (73, 152, 255) with 35% opacity. Numbers have base=10. No guarantee, I cannot be sure how close the shown image is to your original. Can easily cause 1 unit errors due roundings. ADD: It's calculated with the well known elementary mix formula. RGB component A in top layer with opacity P and the same color component B as opaque in bottom layer ...
