Minerals are an abundant element found in rocks, ores, and gems everywhere on earth. They come in a stunning array of colours like carnelian red, amethyst purple, and obsidian black. From the grey category of minerals there are quartz, flint, graphite, and mica. Some grey shades are dark and moody while others are pale and delicate.

For paint selections in room décor, the colours can be creatively used to produce moods from serene and sophisticated to cozy and inviting. And while mineral greys can stand on their own, they also pair well with pops of colour as shown in this bedroom above.

Our gallery of favourite greys shows how to use these colours by themselves or in combination with other hues, showing them off to their full potential:
