Product Description


The Contrasting Shades of Green

Green, which is a colour formed through a combination of blue and yellow, is the second most popular colour in the spectrum, being surpassed only by blue. Green is the colour most closely associated with the world of nature. Whenever we walk though fields, forests or on hillsides we will witness a multitude of shades of the colour green. The colour also connotes growth, youth and health, giving rise to expressions such as “the green shoots of recovery” when the state of an improving economy is being discussed. The colour additionally evokes feelings of renewal and rebirth. It is believed to have the ability to replace and revive depleted energy levels. Green is also considered to be peaceful, refreshing and clean.

However, not all associations with the colour green are positive. It is also employed in a pejorative sense to describe someone who is inexperienced, ill-equipped or naïve. Alternatively, it is a colour that is frequently employed to symbolise envy, possessiveness and materialism.

There are various shades of green, all of which have their own individual characteristics, with the lighter, brighter shades often representing the more positive sentiments. For instance, emerald green is usually thought to be inspirational, confidence-provoking and uplifting, suggesting a feeling of overall well-being. Jade green is felt to inspire trust, being a shade of green that is suggestive of reliability, generosity and wisdom. Lime green has a youthful, lively, mischievous quality to it and it is not surprising that it is the shade of green that is most popular with many younger people. Finally, on the positive side, aquamarine green, representing some of the most beautiful of the world’s oceans is indicative of peace, tranquillity and protectiveness.

On the less positive side, dark green shades suggest greed, over-ambition and selfishness, whilst olive green is felt to symbolise untruthfulness, betrayal and infidelity. Paler shades of green are indicative of inexperience, childishness and lack of sophistication. Green colours that have a strong tinge of yellow have historically been felt to depict cowardice, fear and faint-heartedness. Unsurprisingly, those corporations that use the colour green in their branding tend towards the positive brighter shades and steer clear of those with less positive connotations.

Preciosa’s selection of Viva12, non hotfix green crystal colours represent all of the more positive symbolic allusions of the colour. Lighter shades include Chrysolite and Peridot, whilst the brighter shades include Emerald and Green Turmaline. Finally, the darker side of green is represented by the more moody olivine stones. The variety of sentiments that can be represented by green makes it one of Preciosa’s most versatile colours, providing shades that will match every possible mood and occasion.
