border-block-color

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The border-block-color CSS property defines the color of the logical block borders of an element, which maps to a physical border color depending on the element's writing mode, directionality, and text orientation. It corresponds to the border-top-color and border-bottom-color, or border-right-color and border-left-color property depending on the values defined for writing-mode, direction, and text-orientation.

border-block-color: yellow;
border-block-color: #F5F6F7;

The border color in the other dimension can be set with border-inline-color which sets border-inline-start-color, and border-inline-end-color.
