Steel teal

Steel Teal (#53868B) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of cyan commonly associated with agile (79.3% match), pleasant (79.0% match), and clear (78.7% match). When Steel Teal is combined with Prussian Blue, it appears clear and bitter. When joined with White Smoke, the mood becomes more open. When Steel Teal is added to Bone, it evokes young and dapper feelings. When paired with its complementary color #8C5954, a darker and more saturated variant of the shade "Rose Taupe", it can convey complex or tropical emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #8C5487 (a shade of "Sugar Plum") and #878C54 (a shade of "Old Moss Green"), the resulting palette becomes harder and cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "casual" to the "elegant" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a complex and important atmosphere.
