The Pigment Compendium Dictionary is a comprehensive information source for scientists, art historians, conservators and forensic specialists.
Drawn together from extensive analystical research into the physical and chemical properties of pigments, this essential reference to pigment names and synonyms describes the inter-relationship of different names and terms.
The Dictionary covers the field worldwide from pre-history to the present day, from rock art to interior decoration, from ethnography to contemporary art. Drawing on hundreds of hard-to-obtain documentary sources as well as modern scientific data each term is discussed in detail, giving both its context and composition.

naturally in soils in poorly crystallised (disordered) form, but is more common as a synthetic phase, belonging to the hexagonal system (Cornell and Schwertmann, 1996). Natural feroxyhytes occur above weathered basalts and have so far only been identified on Hawaii (Parfitt et al., 1988). Synthetic feroxyhyte may be produced by titrating iron(II) chloride with sodium hydroxide and water (Schwertmann and Cornell, 2000). Identifications in works of art are not yet known. Iron oxides and hydroxides
which are derived from the high pressure, low temperature metamorphism of basaltic rocks and sedimentary rocks (blueschists), and may be derived from the alteration of jadeite (q.v.). It is frequently found in association with riebeckite and crossite (q.v.) which have similar chemistries but are richer in iron. These rocks are abundant in coastal California, Siphnos and Syros (Greece), Italy and Japan, but are otherwise rare. The name glaucophane is derived from the Greek words glaukos, meaning
of artificial azurite (Richter, 1988). Additional identifications are given by Naumova and Pisareva (1994).

weathering of limestone rocks. Non-marine limestones include travertines and speleothems (cave-deposits; flowstones, stalagmites and stalactites). Lithification of limestones over geological time may produce partial recrystallisation and other chemical alterations of the rock; processes generally covered by the term ‘diagenesis’. Marble is the metamorphic equivalent of limestone, recrystallised at elevated temperatures and pressures. The variety of limestones is enormous and the interested reader
