So named because it was originally derived from the soot of oil lamps, this is pure Carbon.
A soft, slightly cool shade of black, certainly the coolest in the Michael Harding range. Good strong tinter and not too greasy.
To me this is what I would have called a bone black, with it's blueish undertone, and perfect for a Zorn type palette.
