Orpiment Stone / Hartal Warkia

Code: P-222

English Name: Orpiment Stone / Hartal Warkia

Botanical Name: Auripigmentum

Local Name: Hartal Warkia

Product Description

The name Orpiment is derived from the Latin Auripigmentum, meaning gold pigment, in reference to its color and historical use as a golden-yellow pigment. Orpiment is often associated with bright red Realgar, and may form in strikingly colored and unique mineral combinations. Orpiment occurs in hydrothermal veins at low temperature (up to 400°F/200°C), hot spring deposits, and volcanic fumaroles, and it may occur with stibnite and realgar. It also results from the alteration of other arsenic-bearing minerals. When heated, orpiment gives off the garlic odor typical of arsenic minerals.
