The ochre pigments include the iron oxides limonite (yellow), hematite (red), and magnetite (black). The lightest ones, such as the limonite used in this color, are lemon yellow and unusually lightweight, bright, and translucent. The sparkling ochre is combined with pure white marble and China clay in this formulation. The resulting color allows for a clear, cheerful atmosphere that lingers on into the evening, making it seem like the light source is behind the surface.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
