Rublev Colours Blue Ridge Yellow Ocher is a semi-transparent golden yellow, very fine grained and has a buttery consistency. Our yellow ocher is a single pigment color made of natural earths from ocher deposits in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia.
Hydrated iron oxide is the principle coloring agent in yellow ochers. This color is based on the natural mineral goethite associated with varying proportions of others mineral such as clay, chalk and silica. The iron oxide in yellow ochers differ from other ochers in that it contains water. In other words, the iron to which they owe their color is hydrated iron oxide.
