Green colored samples on wall paintings and green powder from a pigment pot found in Pompeii area are investigated by micro-Raman, FT-IR and, for one sample, SEM-EDX. To obtain the green color, green earths and malachite were used, together with mixture of Egyptian blue and yellow ochre. The mineralogical identification of the green earths has been attempted through the comparison of the vibrational features, discriminating between celadonite and glauconite spectra. Traces of a modern synthetic… Expand

TLDR
The slight differences found in the use of the pigments in the three studied sites might show that the same technology, culture and taste spread all over the Roman Empire in North Eastern Italy. Expand

Earth pigments in painting: characterisation and differentiation by means of FTIR spectroscopy and SEM-EDS microanalysis
TLDR
One of the goals of this research has been to establish a relationship between the matrix and the source of the samples tested, and SEM-EDS is probably a better technique than FTIR for characterising umbers and green earths since they do not exhibit significant differences when FTIR studies are performed.
