M a l a c h i t e green : Colour of the Month #6

Green has been used since Antiquity, in the form of green earths and minerals such as malachite. Malachite is perhaps the oldest known green pigment, discovered by Egyptians about 3000 BC. Malachite is a copper carbonate natural occurring mineral, which is also found along with a blue colour mineral called azurite.

N A T U R A M O R T A / A still life at Abadir

'Colour is important in our daily lives, yet it is often taken for granted or little understood. 
Few are taught about colour, but many seem to possess an innate sense of it and are aware 
when colours are used in a harmonious way'  - The Anatomy of Colour Book by Patrick Baty
