We have a range of earth pigments, mineral, and synthetic (YinMn blue) pigments. Our pigments are widely used in paints.
Earth and natural pigments are found in roots, rocks, and soils around the world. Mineral pigments are obtained from the natural earth, ochres, and oxides (clays containing ferric oxide)
Synthetic pigments cannot be obtained from the earth, mostly happen in blue and purple. They were introduced as early as the third or fourth millennium BCE. The first pigment invented is Egyptian Blue.
