Microscopically small particles suspended in ocean waves reflect the sky’s radiant blue colors, allowing a magnificent palette of greenish-blue nuances to develop. When the waves break, mist droplets containing these small inclusions rise upwards. Carried by air currents, they deliver the minute salt crystals necessary to initiate rainfall to the clouds. The foam crests thus connect the sea with the wind and the earth with the sky, and this union is what Light cerulean blue represents.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
