HAN Purple, Deep


Han purple is one of the earliest known man-made pigments.

Purple was seen as superior back in the history. Due to its scarcity, it was often restricted to the wealthy or powerful. You can see Han purple in the tomb of the first emperor of China

There are some white crystalloids inside this pigment, which is normal. Besides, this HAN purple's pigment density is higher than other pigments.
