Black Spinel is a very neutral opaque black pigment, excellent for tinting to create neutral grays.
Black Spinel has excellent lightfastness.
Black Spinel is mildly toxic. The pigment itself has an extremely fine particle size. It causes irritation and ulceration to skin. Respiratory exposure and exposure to dust are serious concerns.
