Egyptian Green

copper glass, 40 - 120 µ


Product Information

An important green pigment of antiquity is the so-called Egyptian green, which was produced by burning a mixture of lime, quartz sand and copper ore. As the name suggests, this was common in ancient Egypt (already traceable in the 4th Dynasty), but it was also found in other early cultures in Iraq and Crete. Egyptian green remained a commonly used green pigment until the first Christian centuries.
