Gunmetal (#2A3439) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of blue commonly associated with steady (85.5% match), dignified (82.5% match), and mature (82.4% match). When Gunmetal is combined with Davy's gray, it appears placid and dignified. When joined with Ebony, the mood becomes more metallic. When Gunmetal is added to Field Drab, it evokes placid and bitter feelings. When paired with its complementary color #382E29, a darker, cooler, and more saturated variant of the shade "Old Burgundy", it can convey thorough or earthy emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #372932 (a shade of "Old Burgundy") and #323729 (a shade of "Graphite Gray"), the resulting palette becomes softer and cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "natural" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a thorough and reasonable atmosphere.
