12 Types of Cobalt Blue

 , May 15, 2020
Cobalt blue is a pigment that is made by sintering cobalt oxide with alumina. Cobalt has been used to color decorative items since the Bronze Age despite the fact that cobalt wasn't discovered as an element until 1735. Cobalt blue has been found in Chinese porcelain from the 8th century and was produced at great scale in Europe beginning around 1807. As such, cobalt blue is very commonly found in 19th century paintings. As with many metal based pigments, cobalt blue is poisonous and must be handled with care. For example, care must be taken not to accidentally inhale it. The following are common named colors inspired by cobalt blue with a few similar colors.
