Yellow &c Is A Mixture Of Chloride And Oxide Of Lead Obtainable

either as a pale or a deep yellow. It is a hard, ponderous, sparkling

substance, of a crystalline texture and bright colour; hardly inferior,

when ground, to chrome yellow. Of an excellent body, and working well in

oil and water, but soon injured both by the sun's light and impure air.

A variety, mentioned by Merimee, in which bismuth and antimony are also

used, is of greater durability.
