Seeing Green

Posted by on Dec 10, 2012

Maybe it was Angelina Jolie’s emerald earrings or the small bespoke malachite box I saw in Rome. Emerald green was achieved in pigments and paintings by using ground malachite dating back to 4000 BC in ancient Egypt.

“Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.” -Pantone
