52 WC – Ultramarine & Cinereous

week 10 – Ultramarine

Ultramarine is a deep blue colour and a pigment which was originally made by grinding lapis lazuli into a powder. The name derives from Middle Latin ultramarinus, literally “beyond the sea” because the lapis lazuli was imported from Asia by sea (the oldest source of lapis lazuli is Afghanistan). The first recorded use of ultramarine as a colour name in English was in 1598.
