Emerald Green

Emerald green became a very popular color during the Regency.  However, the color was created by using arsenic, and many dresses, wallpapers, and even green candy contained traces of the poison.  It didn’t take long for people to find the toxic nature of their favorite color, and they began to warn against its use.  #Regency #trivia
