Deep brown, greenish undertone, prehistoric pigment still mined in France. Natural earth, ocher, trace minerals, high opacity, lightfast, mixes with any medium or pigment. Tester E.C. says, “perfect tone for umber, a little gritty but that’s not hard to mull out of it.”
AKA: Cyprus raw umber, manganese umber, [Fr] ombre naturelle, [Ger] umbererde, [It] terra d’ombra
