Olive Oxide Of Chromium

An olive oxide of this metal is obtainable, transparent, of strict

stability, and altogether superior to any original or compound olive

pigment as yet known. Eligible either in water or oil, it is admirably

adapted for autumn foliage, where a quiet, subdued, nature-like green

is required. It has not, however, been introduced, partly because of its

expense, and partly because a mixture of other pigments with the

ordinary chrome oxides sufficiently answers the purpose. There are more

good colours in the world than are dreamt of in the palette's

philosophy, but either they are not wanted, or are too costly to sell.

In a great measure, both art and science are dependent on commerce.
