 Orpiment with Realgar Factoid: Throughout history, Orpiment has adorned numerous artistic masterpieces, gracing paintings and decorative objects with its vibrant presence. On the other hand, Realgar, its counterpart, has maintained a more elusive presence in the realm of European art. As arsenic-laden gems, these minerals once held court in creative palettes, only to be dethroned by the toxic truth of their nature in the 19th century. In their stead, less perilous pigments emerged, casting a safer hue on the world of artistry.
