Olivine is named for its typically olive-green color (thought to be a result of traces of nickel), though it may alter to a reddish color from the oxidation of iron.

There is not an exact formula for mixing the color olive green because it varies by the desired shade of olive green and the medium you are mixing. In order to mix colors to create an olive green, you start with green, which is an equal mix of blue and yellow. Then you add more yellow, and a bit of red. Add slowly so that you can see how the color is changing and stop when you are satisfied.

Olive green is a tricky color because there are so many shades of Olive green, from light olive to loden. If the olive you are trying to use is a dark olive, treat it as a brown. Usually any colors that go with brown will also go with a dark olive. The lighter olives present more of a problem but you can get around this by realizing that olive green is a mixture of yellow and black. Black is a good accent for a light olive, you can also get away with some shades of navy. Yellow is also a good color selection. On a dark olive, red makes a good accent color. Your best bet is to hold the color you're thinking of using next to the olive, to see how they react to each other.
