Malachite Genuine is a clear, yellowish green made with pigment ground from the distinctively patterned gemstone. Used in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, it remained the best green available for mural and easel painting up through the Renaissance. It is lightfast, with good transparency. We have recently reformulated this color with purer, brighter malachite pigment.
