Description

Green is a color produced by light having a spectrum dominated by energy with a wavelength of about 490–560 nm. It is considered a primary color in the RGB additive color model, but is a secondary color in the traditional RYB color wheel made by mixing blue and yellow. An average green color is represented by the following color coordinates:

- Hex triplet:  #008000  (HTML/CSS)
- RGB: (0, 128~255, 0); CMYK (0, 0, 0, 100) 
- HSV: (120°, 100%, 50~100%)

Examples of inorganic green pigments:

- earth green (celadonite, glauconite, terre verte).
- oxides (viridian, chromic oxide, chrome green, cobalt green).
- carbonates ([malachite]], bice).
- other (emerald green, atacamite, brochantite).

Examples of organic green pigments:

- plant (sap green, chlorophyll).
- synthetic (verdigris, phthalocyanine, Brilliant green).
