what’s says spooky season more than toxic crystals?! realgar is also known as ruby sulphuric or ruby of arsenic. it’s color ranges from yellow to orange to bright red.

ground into a powder, it’s been used for centuries as a poisoning agent in things like pesticides & in paint pigment. there’s also lore from greek mythology that midas & themistocles drank a serum of realgar known as “bull’s blood” to kill themselves.

realgar also has roots in the chinese dragon boat festival. it’s found in bumblebee jasper, & makes up its beautiful bright yellow/orange/red hues.
