Florence

 

This is inspired by the colors of the copper green mineral and semi-precious stone, malachite, and from the same family of stones as azurite and turquoise. In the 17th and 18th century it was used as a color made with verdigris but as it is a very fugitive colour turning black with time so we are not aware of how it was used on woodwork in many houses.
