Emerald green is the color of life and of spring. But it has also been the color of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the color of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. And today, this color still occupies a special position in many cultures and religions. Green, for example, is the holy color of Islam. Many of the states of the Arab League have emerald green in their flags as a symbol of the unity of their faith. In the Catholic Church too, green is regarded as the most natural and the most elemental of the liturgical colors. The magnificent green of the emerald is a color, which conveys harmony, love of nature and elemental joy.

Pliny commented that green gladdened the eye without tiring it. Green is perceived as fresh and vivid, never as monotonous. And in view of the fact that this color always changes somewhat between the bright light of day and the artificial light of a lamp, emerald green retains its lively vigor in all its nuances.

A torus can be constructed from a rectangle by gluing both pairs of opposite edges together with twisting. The usual ring torus in three-dimensional space is shaped like a donut.
