Carnelian (#B31B1B) is a highly saturated and warm shade of red commonly associated with intense (85.5% match), casual (82.9% match), and agile (81.9% match). When Carnelian is combined with Gold, it appears quick and intense. When joined with White, the mood becomes more intense. When Carnelian is added to Eerie Black, it evokes intense and casual feelings. When paired with its complementary color #1BB1B1, a darker and less saturated variant of the shade "Light Sea Green", it can convey striking or casual emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #1AB11A (a shade of "Kelly Green") and #1A1AB1 (a shade of "Zaffre"), the resulting palette becomes harder and warmer than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "classic" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a mysterious and striking atmosphere.
