If your product or marketing tools need a "50's" or "retro" feel, Turquoise is a
perfect colour choice. Anyone growing up in North America in the 1950's, will remember
Turquoise bar stools at the roadside diner, Turquoise appliances and cars and Turquoise
and black poodle skirts.
GO MEX-TEX, MYSTICAL OR HIGH-TECH!
the colours Turquoise and Coral (the opposite colour to Turquoise) are synonymous
with a "desert type feel", and therefore perfect for anything requiring a South-Western
or Arizona feel.
The Mayan and Incan cultures revered the colour
TURQUOISE and mined the stone for use in their ceremonial garb and temples. Both cultures are believed to be descendants of the
lost civilizations of Atlantis and Lemuria, each of which supposedly had highly advanced technologies, therefore the Silicon Age (Silicon
Valley) has also been identified to the colour Turquoise.
High Tech and mass communication are a result of computers and fiber optics, both of which are dependant on
quartz crystal (silica) to enable precision and speed. In this sense then, we have
moved from the Industrial Age, which was the Age of Coal to the Age of Silicon
or the Crystal Age just as the prophecies of Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce indicated
It has been said that the colour TURQUOISE symbolizes
the Age of Aquarius, and it should be noted that the actual astrological sign for Aquarius is depicted by two waves - versus one. It is believed that the second wave represents communication frequencies (or waves), thus marking our present time as the Information Age or the Age of Mass Communication. Interestingly enough, as a
planet we are physically moving out of the spatial co-ordinates of Pisces and entering
the spatial co-ordinates of Aquarius. Coincidence?
