Aspect Color Emerald Green is a signature color of ours that replaces the obsolete, very poisonous, and chemically unstable Copper (II)-acetoarsenite pigment. Emerald Green can also make an economical (semi-transparent) substitute for Viridian; useful for glazing and mixing very similar colors. Made predominately from a genuine-earth pigment giving durability to the paint film as opposed to a garish, student grade oil paint based on phthalo green that is normally cut with chalk or barium sulfate (along with driers), thereby weakening the integrity of the paint film.   

Conforms to ASTM D4302
