Beautiful Green, color of Death

This is a little tribute to the deathly history of toxic green shades, from Scheele's green to the infamous and bright radioactive Radio (and yeah, they were used in absolutely everything: clothing, wall paper, tools, toys and even food coloring or toothpaste)

Lead based white has more time around and much more deaths on it's pocket, but toxic green dyes were so fast and horrible in their killings that they may even be behind some of the first health regulations in our ever charming XIX century.
