A blend of organic Lake colours (Arylide Yellow and Phthalo Green) with two inorganic whites to give a safe and permanent substitute for the original Emerald Green, the notorious Copper Aceto-Arsenite, a brilliant green introduced circa 1810 and long since abandoned as being impermanent, highly reactive with other pigments and highly poisonous! Great for any landscape / plein air artist.
