The color is inspired by copper and nitric acid, but the true inspiration for Fetch Me My Lab Coat is a quote by chemist Ira Remsen (which is apparently a trimmed down version of the full original).  

"While reading a textbook of chemistry, I came upon the statement, nitric acid acts upon copper, and I was determined to see what this meant. Having located some nitric acid, I had only to learn what the words act upon meant. In the interests of knowledge, I was even willing to sacrifice one of the few copper cents then in my possession. I put one of them on the table, opened the bottle marked 'nitric acid', poured some of the liquid on the copper, and I prepared to make an observation. But what was this wonderful thing which I beheld? The cent was already changed, and it was no small change either. A greenish- yellow liquid formed and fumed over the cent on the table. The air became coloured dark-red. How could I stop this? I tried by picking up the cent and throwing it out of the window. I learned another fact: nitric acid acts on fingers. The pain led to another unpremeditated experiment. I drew my hands across my trousers and discovered nitric acid acts on trousers. This was the most impressive experiment I have ever performed. I tell of it even now with interest. It was a revelation to me. Plainly the only way to learn about such remarkable kinds of action is to see the results, to experiment, to work in a laboratory."

A teal crelly base with UCC flakes that shift from red and bronze to green, and unicorn pee pigment (old school unicorn pee, not aurora pigment) shifts from red to gold to green, and flashes vivid crimson and bright green at the extremes of its color range.
