Midori - Emerald (2013)
Nothing says glamour like a big rock. Check out these faux emerald "Mini Angie" earrings, an homage to the memorable Lorraine Schwartz pair Ms. Jolie wore to the 2008 Oscars with her killer Elie Saab gown. But if you don't have a gala to attend, these go just as well with an LBD as they do with jeans and a tee.
Midori - Emerald (2013)
What? Kim hosted the Midori Makeover Parlour in LA last night, and obviously, when you're hosting a party in celebration of a melon-flavoured, green liquor, you match your dress with your drink. Kim opted for a low-cut, velvet wrap dress in an emerald shade.
The Asian emerald cuckoo is a species of cuckoo in the family Cuculidae. It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forest. Source: Wikipedia
In English we use a lot of object names for colors - coral, teal (the duck), orange (yes, from the fruit - naranjo in Spanish). Turquoise, brick, rust, chestnut, amber, emerald, the infamous 'aubergine' (a $1.95 word for eggplant) mauve (what IS that color, anyway?) puce - exactly between brown, grey and violet. Taupe, caput mortum is a marvelous pinky-violetish-greyed brown pigment.Midori is a melon, isn't it? Apricot and peach are both quite different from the fruit, and yet we 'recognize these when we see them'.Violet which is now synonymous with purple is, in fact, a different color entirely. Violet is that color in the picture, 'purple' is actually a medium dark red - cadmium red dark.Porphyry, the purple of Imperial days, is a dark reddish marble and late Byzantine emperors had to be born in a special room clad with that stone. Purpleheart wood is a similar color.
Single crystals of emerald synthesized by means of the flux method were adopted for crystallographic analyses. Emerald crystals with a wide range of Cr3+-doping content up to 3.16 wt% Cr2O3 were examined by X-ray single crystal diffraction refinement method. The crystal structures of the emerald crystals were refined to R 1 (all data) of 0.019-0.024 and w R 2 (all data) of 0.061-0.073. When Cr3+ substitutes for Al3+, the main adjustment takes place in the Al-octahedron and Be-tetrahedron. The effect of substitution of Cr3+ for Al3+ in the beryl structure results in progressively lengthening of the Al-O distance, while the length of the other bonds remains nearly unchanged. The substitution of Cr3+ for Al3+ may have caused the expansion of a axis, while keeping the c axis unchanged in the emerald lattice. As a consequence, the Al-O-Si and Al-O-Be bonding angles are found to decrease, while the angle of Si-O-Be increases as the Al-O distance increases during the Cr replacement.
