History : this color speaks about escape and the wonders of the sea-floor, clear water and turquoise blue. Its tangy red-orange hue surprises, inspires freshness, feminity. It is cheerful, natural, positive and yet infinitely delicate and sweet. Hokusai has understood this subtlety and has used coral in some engraving.
