Back in June we visited the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and I made sure to visit the Gem & Mineral collection to take photos. I found a handful that were wonderful and interesting and here is the first of this collection in hand-dyed yarn. ORPIMENT is a mineral that was used for centuries as a pigment in painting and sealing wax - this was before learning that the mineral is arsenic. Another one of nature's beautiful-but-deadly combinations . . .

This is a tonal yarn dyed using an immersion technique with shades of pink, orange, gold with a final overlay of light brown.
