28 Types of Viridian Color

 , updated on
Viridian is a dark blue-green which stems from the Latin word viridis meaning green. This is considered a bluish variant of forest green whereby both are based on the color of dark green forest environments. Viridian emerged as a color name in the Victorian-era to describe an early synthetic dye composed of chromium oxide. This pigment was marketed as early as 1849 and was commonly used in Victorian interiors and exteriors. Viridian feels deep, luxurious and historical but doesn't reflect light well as an interior color. The following are common types of Viridian color.
