Modern Colours

Stoneground defines modern colours as those developed and discovered after 1704. This was when the accidental discovery of Prussian Blue occurred. The colours Stoneground classifies as such, contain organic and inorganic pigments. Also, they are typically characterized by their intense and bright appearance.
