Kreinik Colors In Shading Order

We received this letter from a stitcher, regarding our collection of gold and silver thread colors:

Hello,
   I looked up your color chart for metallics.  It is enormous!  I found your color family cards, but they are only for purchase, and I could not view this on-line. 
   Could you please give me the progression of color from light to dark (or visa versa) of your golds and your silvers.  I have some from a variety of projects and need to organize them for a new project, by light to dark or visa versa.  I have a hard time differentiating between some with subtle differences.
   Thank you very much.
   Regards, Mrs. N.

What a great idea! We have compiled lists of Kreinik gold and silver colors in shading progression order, based on our observations.
