Beryl Green, Bokhara & Moonstone Grey Ball Candle
Colourful candles with a twist!
Our eco, fair trade dinner candles are striped in bold bands of British Colour Beryl Green, Bokhara & Moonstone Grey.
Beryl Green: the colour of the precious stone Beryl, from the Greek Berullos. The Green Beryl is coloured by the presence of iron, the gem can vary from translucent to transparent, which results in increasing the shine and brilliance of the gem.
Bokhara Green: named from the colour often found in oriental rugs from the Bokhara district of Turkestan. Traditionally made by the Turkmen tribes, the rugs were made almost entirely from locally obtained materials, using wool from the herds and vegetable dyes, or other natural dyes from the land to create the Bokhara green colour.
Moonstone Grey: a descriptive name from one of the groups of minerals known as felspars found chiefly in Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). One of the delicate blues found chiefly in Chinese pottery and silks.
