Colours & Emotion For March 2018

Colours & Emotion
  1. Every colour elicits a unique and different emotional response from the viewer. Most of the movies show yellow, the colour of the sun, as a colour for cowardice. In Buddhism, yellow has far more positive connotations. It stands above all as a symbol of humility and renunciation and therefore is the colour of the robes of monks. Some Germans associate yellow with envy. In French, those who 'laugh yellow' are certainly not the calmest or jolliest of fellows. Isn't it fascinating how the same colour evokes or triggers a different emotion in different parts of the world?

  2. Crimson hues stand for a variety of strong emotions, from love to anger to embarrassment. It is not just the English speakers who see red. In France, you might be rouge de colère meaning 'red with anger', while in Romania you could find yourself'vedearoșuînfațaochilor' which means literally 'seeing red in front of your eyes'. Red is also associated with anger in German, but if your blood is really boiling then you are positively prismatic: a hopping-mad Berliner might sichgrün und blauärgern meaning'argue oneself blue and green'. Interesting, isn't it?

Colours & Gems For March 2018

Colours & Gems
  1. Chrome Diopside
    It seems like nature has gifted the long hard winter months of Siberia with rich green to treat the eyes. This challenging landscape is home to the world's primary source of Chrome Diopside, a Diopside gem variety that is coloured by chromium, the important element that also gives emerald its rich green colour. It is mined in a remote region called Inagli in Eastern Siberia. The luxurious deep green colour combined with transparency give the stone a glow and adds more value. It has low hardness, making it prone to scratches. It is a recent entry into the mainstream gemstones' market.

  2. Gaspeite
    Gaspeite is a gemstone that is cut into cabochons and beads for jewellery. It is a rare mineral with few notable occurrences. It is named after its original occurrence in the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec, Canada, where it is found in the Gaspé mine, Murdochville. Those who have used this stone have found that it possesses strong healing properties. It is believed to have excellent metaphysical properties to aid weight loss and to help clear clutter. It has recently become very popular among gem and mineral collectors, mostly due to its rarity and its slight similarity in appearance to the rare green turquoise.

Colours & Nature For March 2018

Colours & Nature
  1. Meet the Sun Parakeet. It is also known as the Sun Conure. This beautiful parrot is medium-sized, native to north-eastern South America. The adult male and female look similar with predominantly golden-yellow plumage and bright orange-flushed under parts and face. It has a nicely proportioned figure, neither slim nor stout in profile. It looks appealing to those who are drawn to exotic bird species and is the most popular avian pets in the world today. Conservationists are working to protect the species as it is believed to be globally threatened.

  2. Take a look at this gorgeous petrol blue and white butterfly. It is called the Sapho Longwing, a native of Costa Rica and certain rainforests in Belize. Sapho Longwings differ from other butterfly species in that they only breed on one specific plant. Now isn't that extraordinary? The caterpillar of this species is quite choosy, breeding on just one species of Passion Vine called Pittier's Passion Vine. There are actually only a few species of butterfly that use just one plant species as their caterpillar plant. Imagine what will happen if the plant goes extinct?!
