Quartz is a subtle color that has a feminine appeal that is hard to explain. In Raphael’s painting of the Bible story where Jacob meets Rachel, Rachel (who is assuming a flirtatious pose) is wearing an overdress that is Quartz colored. Quartz is a color used in artwork to hint at desire and propriety.
How the color is made: Mixing White with very Soft Blue creates a slightly Puprlegrayish Blue hue that looks like a meadow of delicate flowers.
History: Historically, Quartz symbolized exclusivity and nobility and was a color that was adored by the aristocracy as a way to distinguish their class and stature in society—fieldworkers and laborers were never seen wearing colors like Quartz.
