Which is which: Aqua vs Turquoise

So, until this morning I was under the impression that I was crystal clear (hehehe) on the difference between aqua and turquoise. Turns out that after a little research, I had it ALL wrong.  After I retrieved my blown mind from across the room, we (and by “we” I mean Mr. Trash to Treasure)  put together a little snapshot visual of the difference as a little cheat sheet:

Now we can all go forth with confidence and state our love for either color with absolute conviction, until the conversation shifts to magenta vs. fuchsia…oh boy..
