Azurite Full Pan

SKU: NAP-850-101FP
Details Rublev Colours Azurite is a greenish blue watercolor that is transparent, granulating and non-staining. Azurite is a basic copper carbonate mineral, which is found in many parts of the world in the upper oxidized portions of copper ore deposits. Azurite has been used as a pigment as early as the Fourth Dynasty in Egypt and was the most important blue pigment in European painting during all of the Middle Ages, Renaissance and later until the 18th century. It was largely displaced on the artists' palette by Prussian blue in the 18th century.
