Colour lovers: emerald

Emerald is a light and bright shade of green with a faint bluish cast. Green is not a primary colour but is created out of a mixture of yellow and blue, or yellow and cyan. The word green is closely related to the Old English verb growan, "to grow". It reminds us of plants or the ocean and because of that association the colour has a calming effect. It's commonly used on environmentally–friendly products for the same reason. In combination with blue the calming can even be enhanced and it's a harmonious palette.
