Bella Parade '13 : Post # 24

We're nearing the end of the Parade. Just 5 more to go!!!

Yesterday's color was Periwinkle! Oh! I love the name as much as the color!

Bella Solids Periwinkle Yardage SKU# 9900-260

Here's today's

And here are the hints!

1. I am a dark blue pigment with the idealized formula Fe7(CN)18. Another name for me is Berlin blue or, in painting, Parisian blue!
2.  I am used as an antidote for certain kinds of heavy metal poisoning, e.g., by cesium and thallium. In particular I was used to absorb 137Cs+ from those poisoned in the GoiĆ¢nia accident.
3. _ R _ _ _ I A _              _ _ U E

Now to make the lovely color combinations!
First up, the monochromatic scheme - using Mist and Teal

Next, for the complementary scheme, I paired it with Rust
