Realgar translates from Arabic as 'powder of the mine'. It has a stunning yellow color with red complexities but high caution should be taken when mixing as it is an arsenic sulphide mineral. It is often found with lead and was traditionally used as a paint in the Renaissance era as well as being known as a poisonous substance across the globe. - See more at: https://saturdaymarketproject.com/shop/665/l.-cornelissen--son-dry-pigment-realgar-10g#sthash.aUAjIqID.dpuf
