Egyptian blue color is one of the first colors developed. Its history dates back to ancient Egypt. During the excavations, items bearing this color were found.
Egyptian blue is a color that was found in the Pyramids and this color is produced naturally.
It is the only blue used in any ancient Egyptian art or artifacts.
After the pharaonic era, the use of this color dwindled until it was no longer used.
The color nevertheless remained popular in Western art through the 19th century, when it began to be produced synthetically.
During this period egyptian blue, now considered a fugitive color, was replaced by cobalt blue and Prussian blue.
