Heaven bluish
is a colour that resembles that of an unclouded sky around noon (azure) reflecting off a metallic surface. The entry for “heaven-blue” in Murray’s
New English Dictionary
(1919) reports a first sighting of the term in the article on “argent” in Ephraim Chambers’south
Cyclopaedia
of 1728. All the same, many writers had used the term “sky bluish” to name a color before Chambers. For instance, we find “sky bluish” in
A Drove of Voyages and Travels
(London: Awnsham and John Churchill, 1704), vol. two, p. 322, where John Nieuhoff describes certain flowers: “they are of a lovely sky bluish colour, and yellow in the middle”. The sense of this colour may have been first used in 1585 in a volume by Nicolas de Nicolay where he stated “the tulbant [turban] of the merchant must exist
skie coloured“.[1]
