Antimony Red

Or Mineral Kermes. We have obtained this colour ranging from light

orange to deep carmine, of different degrees of brightness and

stability. Some of the tints stood well in a book, but faded on exposure

to light and air; and some even vanished when secluded from those

agents. It has more than once been recommended as a pigment, but our

experience is against its adoption by artists. The colour is not

affected by sulphuretted hydrogen.
