We ordered 2 of these for our new home. They were packaged very, very well and survived being moved around for several months during construction. They are definitely dark green and we knew that before we ordered. They sit atop Emerald Pearl granite and look absolutely stunning. They are very easy to keep clean. Be aware that the outside of the sinks are not as smooth as the inside glass. A little rough but I believe it adds to the beauty and makes them appear to be hand made. We had the hand made type that we purchased locally in our previous home and paid 3 times more than the price on overstock.
