Turquoise (#40E0D0) is a somewhat saturated and cool shade of cyan commonly associated with tropical (78.0% match), refreshing (71.1% match), and steady (70.3% match). When Turquoise is combined with Steel Blue, it appears young and refreshing. When joined with Mint Green, the mood becomes more tropical. When Turquoise is added to Gainsboro, it evokes smart and clear feelings. When paired with its complementary color #E03E4E, a lighter and less saturated variant of the shade "Alizarin", it can convey happy or casual emotions. However, when we analyze the color next to its other triadic colors, #CF3EDF (a shade of "Steel Pink") and #DFCF3E (a shade of "Citrine"), the resulting palette becomes softer and cooler than the complementary color palette and changes from the color index category of "dynamic" to the "sophisticated" category. Specifically, the new triad produces a childlike and lively atmosphere.
