I've used volkonskoite from several suppliers & they are all very similar. Master Pigments' version is possibly screened just a bit finer than the others, making the mulling process that much easier. In other suppliers expect the occasional chunk or grit, but the MP version has none of that & is also a little better value. This green is indispensable to artists. Very fluffy & soft as silk. Great for building textures.
Came quickly and looks beautiful in powered form. Excited to try it in egg tempera.
The Russian Green consists of Volkonskoite a variety of smectite rich of Chromium oxides was the beloved colour of Picasso during the Blue Period. The specific material was valuable and very pure. Its cost isn't expensive, as someone could be suposses.
