Rich emerald green composed of quartz, aluminum, iron, trace minerals, mined in Tavush, Armenia. Transparent pigment, cool tone compared to other earth greens, needs more grinding for oil paints. Fair tinting strength, light value, low flocculation, good lightfastness, lifts well. Both Tavush greens are transparent and very similar in color. This one is slightly darker, similar to Verona Green.
