-Natural Mineral Pigment - *Set pigments (Natural Tourensekimatsu, Natural Matsubarokusho)
Natural mineral pigments are mainly made from ores (azurite, malachite, cinnabar, etc.) and grinded into grains. It is manufactured from the same raw material to the about 10 different granularities, and it becomes finer as the number increases from 5 (coarse) to 13 (powder), and ""byaku (white) "" refers to the finest powder form. The color tone changes as the grain size changes, with coarse # 5 being the darkest and lightness increasing as the grain size becomes finer. Because of the difference in grain size and specific gravity, it is mostly used as a single color.
