Minerals are an abundant element found in rocks, ores, and gems everywhere on earth. They come in a stunning array of colors like carnelian red, amethyst purple and obsidian black. From the gray category of minerals there are quartz, flint, graphite, and mica. Some gray shades are dark and moody while others are pale and delicate.
For paint selections in room décor, the colors can be creatively used to produce moods from serene and sophisticated to cozy and inviting. And while mineral grays can stand on their own, they also pair well with pops of color as shown in this bedroom above.
