When you hear the word "chartreuse," what comes to mind? For some, it may be a sweet herbal liqueur made by Carthusian monks. For others, it might be a bright, almost neon-like green color that's impossible to miss. In this article, we'll explore the history and modern use of the color chartreuse, as well as its appearance in dice made by yours truly.
The color chartreuse is named after the French liqueur, which was first created in 1737. But the chartreuse color we know today didn't come into existence until much later, in the early 20th century. It's a mix of yellow and green, with a hint of fluorescence that gives it that distinctive glow.
In the mid-20th century, chartreuse became a popular color for high-visibility items like safety vests and road signs. Its bright, almost fluorescent quality makes it an excellent color for catching the eye and ensuring that the wearer or object is noticed.
Today, chartreuse is used in a wide range of contexts, from fashion to advertising to interior design. It's a color that demands attention and can add a bold, playful touch to any design.
As a dice maker, I've chosen to incorporate neon chartreuse into my creations. It's a color that's impossible to ignore, and it adds a certain flair to any collection. I create my dice by carefully mixing and casting the resin, then hand-polishing each die to perfection. The result is a set of dice that's as visually stunning as it is fun to use. So why not add a bit of chartreuse to your dice collection today?
