Colours & Emotion For November 2018

  1. According to a study, when subjects were told to assess products with different colour names, such as makeup products, fancy names were preferred over simple, plain names. For example, “mocha” was found to be greatly more likeable than “brown,” despite the fact that the subjects were shown the same colour. Research has found that people rated fancy, elaborately-named paint colours as more visually appealing than their simply-named counterparts. It has also been shown that more unique or unusual the colour names, more they are preferred no matter what the object. Interesting, isn’t it?

  2. A research in studies on colour perception and colour preferences show that when it comes to hues, shades, tints, the favourite colours of men and women differ hugely. Men generally opt for bold colours while the ladies prefer softer colours. Also, men are more likely to pick shades of colours as their favourites, particularly colours with black added, whereas women are more receptive to tints of colours, especially colours with white added. Isn’t that fascinating?

Colours & Gems For November 2018

  1. Fluorite
    Fluorite forms in hydrothermal veins in the Earth's crust and in cavities in sedimentary rocks. Over the centuries, these fissures have been opening and closing constantly, sometimes even cutting off the fluids needed for Fluorite to form. These subtle changes in the chemistry of these fluids cause colour zoning in the crystals as they grow. Interesting, isn’t it? It also has amazing healing properties. By balancing the third eye chakra, the Fluorite crystal protects from negativity and also helps if you feel mentally blocked. It also enhances concentration and aids in decision-making. This balancing and grounding stone gives structure to your thought process during tough times.

  2. Selenite
    This stone got its name from Selene, the Greek goddess of the moon. Selenite is known for its transparency and ethereal radiance. It reflects a pure beam of white light into any environment in which it rests, just like the moon. It is believed to contain the liquid Light of Spirit inhabiting the place between light and matter. Selenite carries fine, high frequency and intensity of energy that surpasses nearly all stones for opening, clearing, and activating the Crown and Higher Crown Chakras. This stone is ideal for meditation and spiritual purposes.

  1. Bar-pouched wreathed hornbill
    Meet the bar-pouched wreathed hornbill. It gets its name from its casque, which has a flattened wrinkled band, or a wreath, at the base of the bill. It is a species of hornbill found in the forests east and south through mainland Southeast Asia, the Greater Sundas in Indonesia and far north-east of India and Bhutan. It is 75–100 cm long. The very large bill of the bird aids in reaching fruits on adjacent branches, or branches that are too small to stand the weight of these large birds. In an adult wreathed hornbill, the overall plumage is black in colour. The bird has black wings and a small white tail.

  2. Glass-winged butterfly
    Take a look at this marvel of nature. It is the glass-winged butterfly (Greta oto). If you are wondering why the wings of this butterfly look transparent, because it is indeed so! The tissues between its veins look like glass because it does not have the coloured scales found in other butterflies. This feature works in its favour because predatory birds find it extremely tough to track it in flight. Fascinating, isn’t it? It is found in abundance in places like Panama, Columbia and Mexico.
