9. Ultramarine Blue
The history of Ultramarine Blue can be traced back to ancient times. The pigment was originally made from a rare, semi-precious stone called lapis lazuli, which was mined in Afghanistan and other regions of Central Asia. The stone was prized for its deep blue color and was used to create decorative objects and jewelry.
In the Middle Ages, lapis lazuli was ground into a fine powder and used to create Ultramarine Blue pigment. The process was time-consuming and expensive, making Ultramarine Blue one of the most costly pigments available. Because of its high price, Ultramarine Blue was reserved for use in the most prestigious artworks, such as those commissioned by the church or wealthy patrons.
The name "Ultramarine" comes from the Latin word "ultramarinus", meaning "beyond the sea". This name reflects the fact that the pigment was brought to Europe from distant lands, such as Afghanistan and Persia, by traders along the Silk Road.
In the 19th century, synthetic pigments were developed that could replicate the color of Ultramarine Blue at a much lower cost. These synthetic pigments became popular among artists and are still used today to create Ultramarine Blue paint.
