A to Z Challenge: Writing Colors - Xanthic

Welcome back to A to Z! We're almost done!

This year, I have been providing different colors for descriptive purposes in writing using the website Color-ize to look at an alphabetical list of colors that we can use instead of using the same basic colors we know off the top of our heads. One color can come in so many shades; why not take a look at them?

Today's color is: Xanthic.

All the images gave me were fish and wildlife, so I imagine no one really uses this color for anything. We should start! It sounds like a great descriptive word. Xanthic is a yellow with enough blue in it to give it a neon green shade. It's vibrant, loud, and apparently found abundantly in nature. :) 


  1. I had never heard of this color before! Interesting.

  2. I had a giggle when I read the name of this color... it reminds me of a certain medicine used to combat heartburn :)
