Chrysocolla is a natural mineral of great beauty (see photo of a raw piece on left), it appears as a swirling mass of turquoise and teal, blues and greens.
This Chrysocolla Deep is quite different the other version we sell here, it doesn't have any of the turquoise hues.
In masstone it is a dark mossy green hue, rather transparent in opacity. A very gentle tinter and once white is added it produces a range, fairly neutral green grays.
The paint in texture has a very, slight grittiness and is quite buttery in feel and viscosity.
Wall paintings in Siena cathedral from the 13th Century have been found to contain Chrysocolla and ancient Egyptian artefacts so I guess it is pretty lightfast!
