Mint Tourmaline Colour?

@navneetgems wrote a great article about Mint Tourmaline here:

However, it begs an interesting question: What Colour Is ‘Mint Green’ ?

It’s generally accepted that ‘Mint Green’ Garnet has a hint of blue to it, and if it has a purer light green it’s usually called ‘Kiwi Green’ or slightly yellowish green is generally called ‘Apple Green’

I would love to hear people’s opinions about this.

Here in Brasil, the nicest ones come from a place called Pirineu, in the state of Minas Gerais. Who knows them recognizes them right away.
