JFM E News August 2014 – Pantone Colour of the Month
Green is said to be the manifestation of truth, as revealed in deeds and action. It’s the colour of our heart chakra, which rules our ability to love and empathize.
The blending of yellow and blue make this wonderful colour. It’s commonly associated with fertility, spring, growth and the environment, but different greens have different associations. Olive is the colour of peace while dark greens may symbolize ambition, good fortune or envy.
Precious stones jade and emerald are prized in monetary and symbolic terms, while aqua – in jewelry and nature – is the colour of emotional healing. In the natural world, snakes, lizards and many insects use green to mimic the chlorophyll greens of their surroundings.
