Manganese Violet Professional Watercolour is prepared using the inorganic metallic phosphate pigment, α-ammonium manganese (III) pyrophosphate. The pigment has been selected for its purity, light fastness and violet hue, making it ideal for use in A J Ludlow’s Professional watercolour range.

The manganese violet colour name has been historically known as “permanent violet” and also “mineral violet”. The α-ammonium manganese phosphate (C.I. PV16) pigment is very similar in hue to that of cobalt phosphate (C.I. PV14), but has a higher tinctorial strength and so became more popular than the cobalt violet as an artists’ pigment.

The blueness of the manganese pigment used in Manganese Violet Professional Watercolour is due to the α -ammonium manganese (III) pyrophosphate present in the pigment’s crystal matrix, which is possible to synthesise without the red-shade β-polymorph.
