Tell me, very specifically
, what is your most favorite color?
I tend to love them all for different reasons, but there is one color that stands out for me. And it can't be just any shade. And many people find it interesting to learn that for me it isn't a shade of purple. And this most beloved color for me can only be found in transparent mediums. It doesn't do the same for me as a flat color, although I do enjoy it. This color never fails to make me stop and wistfully enjoy it, wherever it occurs.
I think it may stem back to a happy moment in my childhood. I had several lengths of tiny clear plastic spheres on a strand. This color was more unusual than the rest of the strands and it's embedded in my memory. I can recall playing with those things, they were about 2' long and I'd hold one by an end, letting it dangle down and start spinning it until the it was a blur of color and shape. It's why, I think, I like cobalt blue glass, and ruby glass, and amber glass as well, but my favorite was the olive.
Interestingly, I could even find the scientific breakdown of my color! Olive-green colored reduced glass compositions are disclosed in which the glass is a soda-lime-silicate glass having Fe.sub.2 O.sub.3, S.sup.-2 and Cr.sub.2 O.sub.3 present in the following approximate ranges in % by weight.
Share a story of why if you have one, or just reply with a shade. But please, tell me your
favorite color. Feel free to use pictures!
