An incredibly beautiful Naples Yellow, being darker it has tendencies towards flesh tones but still remaining strongly yellow. They don't make paint like this anymore...well actually they do! The Rublev description is below:

"Naples Yellow Dark (Lead Antimonate Yellow) is an opaque ocherous yellow, fine grained with medium tinting strength. This is genuine lead antimonate yellow made according to historical recipes. This is the historical pigment (not a mixture of pigments to make Naples yellow hue) ground in linseed oil without any additives (e.g. stearates, waxes, etc.) or fillers typical of modern colors. It is ground on stone mills repeatedly to a smooth paste. Hold the tube of paint in your hands and you will feel the difference from convenience hue paints made by other manufacturers—the genuine color is so much heavier. Load your brush with it and see the difference. Lead antimonate yellow has been made in various periods as early as the sixteenth to fourteenth century B.C.E. at Thebes. Lead antimonate yellow reached its highest popularity in European art between about 1750 and 1850 after which it was gradually replaced by chrome yellow (lead chromate) and later cadmium yellow (cadmium sulfide).
