What colors do you mix to get turquoise?

Answer

The color turquoise is made when blue and green are mixed together. The color is named after the semiprecious stone of the same name, which is greenish blue in color.

Turquoise is a tertiary color, meaning that it can only be made by mixing a secondary color with a primary color. A secondary color is a color that is made when two primary colors are mixed. The three primary colors are red, yellow and blue. Primary colors cannot be created by mixing other colors. To create turquoise, one should mix blue and yellow to create green. Next, a bit more blue should be added to the green to get turquoise.
