Ancient Egyptians thought color held sacred energy

Green. Green was the color of sacred energy and is today the official color of the country. Osiris was green, both the God of vegetation and rebirth, the dead reborn and some special medicinal plants...

A bright green stone found inside a fossilized leather bag buried with an Egyptian toddler. The green stone likely had great magical significance for the ancient Egyptians.

'The finds help to explain why hieroglyphics and historical texts record that Egyptian children wore green eye makeup. It also adds to the growing body of evidence that ancient Egyptians thought color itself held sacred energy that could help or hurt individuals.'
