Scope note
Copper carbonate pigment that is green in color rather than blue, counterpart to natural malachite pigment. It tends to have regularly sized particles with rounded edges with a paler color than natural malachite pigment. Natural malachite was occasionally used in tempera-based paintings before the 16th century and later, green verditer was used for both distemper and oil based interior house paints in the 19th century.
