Green of Life and Love
The green of the emerald is the color of life and of the Springtime, which comes round again and again. But it has for centuries, been the color of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the color of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. Today, this color occupies a special position in many cultures and religions. Green, for example, is the holy color of Islam. This color also has a high status in the Catholic Church, where green is regarded as the most natural and the most elemental of the liturgical colors.
The magnificent green of the emerald is a color which conveys harmony, love of nature and elemental joie de vivre. The human eye can never see enough of this unique colour. The eye never tires of it. Green is perceived as fresh and vivid, never as monotonous. Green changes somewhat between the bright light of day and the artificial light of a lamp, emerald green retains its lively vigor in all its nuances.
