Hex colour reference: #77dde7
A colourful note: turquoise blue was a new shade for Crayola back in 1935. The first recorded use of turquoise as a colour name in English dates back to 1573.
Turquoise is named after a gem of the same name, a gem that was originally imported from Turkey. No surprise then, that the word turquoise comes from the French for Turkish.
For me, this gem of a colour immediately calls to mind the stunning beauty of Corsica’s coastline.
