Made from magnetite ore sourced from the quarries in the heart of the Luberon Massif in France.
Deep black, strong tinting strength so lots of steps available from deep black to light grey. It has a fairly neutral temperature, and it paints 'long' meaning it will brush out with a sable bush with no medium added.
This black is going to have a natural affinity with earths.
Also being earth based there is less greasiness, which I am sure you will appreciate if you have ever used a generic carbon black sliding all over the place.
