Emerald color in the CMYK model has the values (60, 0, 70, 0). Thus, there is 60 of cyan, 70 of yellow and 0 of both magenta and black. The closest hex code of the color is #6AC17B with RGB equivalent values (106, 193, 123). The CMYK system is the backbone of the color printing technology found in both large industrial and small desktop printers. Colors are created using only four inks - cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and black (K). Please understand that the reproducibility of emerald CMYK depends on the quality of the paper, the printer and the inks in the machine.
NOTE: The emerald (CMYK) hex color code mentioned on this page is just an approximation. It has been calculated from the CMYK values. As you probably know, the CMYK color model is for print media while hex codes and the equivalent RGB values are for screen. The two can seldom be converted correctly. Additionally, emerald color displayed on the screen through its hex code, may look very different when printed (by the CMYK values).
The complement of Emerald CMYK is Sky Magenta with the hex code #C16AB0. Complementary colors are those found at the opposite ends of the color wheel. Thus, as per the RGB system, the best contrast to #6AC17B color is offered by #C16AB0. The complementary color palette is easiest to use and work with. Studies have shown that contrasting color palette is the best way to grab a viewer's attention.
The analogous colors of Emerald CMYK (#6AC17B) are Green Sheen (#6AC1A7) and Dollar Bill (#85C16A). In the RGB color wheel, these two analogous colors occur to the right and left of Emerald CMYK with a 30° separation on either side. An analogous color palette is extremely soothing to the eyes and works wonders if your main color is soft or pastel.
As per the RGB color wheel, the split-complementary colors of Emerald CMYK (#6AC17B) are #A76AC1 (Rich Lavender) and #C16A85 (Turkish Rose). A split-complementary color palette consists of the main color along with those on either side (30°) of the complementary color. Based on our research, usage of split-complementary palettes is on the rise online, especially in graphics and web sites designs. It may be because it is not as contrasting as the complementary color palette and, hence, results in a combination which is pleasant to the eyes.
Emerald CMYK triadic color palette has three colors each of which is separated by 120° in the RGB wheel. Thus, #7B6AC1 (Toolbox) and #C17B6A (Light Taupe) along with #6AC17B create a stunning and beautiful triadic palette with the maximum variation in hue and, therefore, offering the best possible contrast when taken together.
The tetradic palette of Emerald CMYK has four colors - #7B6AC1 (Toolbox), #C16AB0 (Sky Magenta) and #B0C16A (Middle Green Yellow) in addition to the base color (#6AC17B). A tetradic color palette is complex and, in most cases, should not be used off-the-shelf. We suggest tweaking the colors slightly to achieve desired results.
Emerald CMYK square color palette has #6A85C1 (Glaucous), #C16AB0 (Sky Magenta) and #C1A76A (Camel). Quite like triadic, the hues in a square palette are at the maximum distance from each other, which is 90°. Note: For several colors purposes, a square palette may look much better than the tetrad color palette.
Emerald CMYK Color Rainbow Palette
Our Emerald CMYK rainbow color palette is based on the RGB model and consists of 7 colors, just like the traditional rainbow. You might not see a lot of variation in color, especially if the chosen color is dark or extremely light. However, this can lead interesting rainbow palettes that are faded, soft, pastel or dull.
