When I try this, the foreground text seems too dark. I think you have it at base00, when it should be at base0. This change it for me:
*foreground: #839496

I have an issue with color8 being the same color as the background. Some CLI apps I use (notably node/npm/express/grunt and everything from that stack), use that color text on the background, making it unreadable.

I just got rid of color8 and renamed color9->8, color10->9 etc.

Thanks. Works amazing. But with this config image preview in ranger doesn't work anymore, is it occurs only on my laptop?

@bitswarming, this is not problem of .Xresources. The problem of Solarized color scheme (i. e. her implementation):
See colors of my terminal
Check dark green or dark yellow colors.

If you want to get correct colors in htop, see this page: Htop with patches.

BTW, I don't understand why everyone likes this config. Nothing unusual, I think.

Sorry for being completely retentive, but is there a formal license for this code? I wouldn't mind using it in a distro. X license would be fine :)
