This is Titanium Antinomy Chromium Oxide, a synthetic inorganic compound which I use to make a solid mid-range substitute Naples Yellow whilst I was seeking out a source of genuine Lead Antimoniate. Now that I have one, it seems that many artists wish me to retain this beautifully golden paint which makes bronze-like hues and works very well with the low Earths.
