Winsor Emerald is a bright clean opaque emerald colour. First documented in 1822, it was originally a deadly colour containing arsenic. It is said to have killed Napoleon as his wallpaper in St Helens was emerald green. Winsor & Newton have since created a non-toxic version closely matching the original colour.
