Pigment Information

This color contains the following pigments:

BR1-Rhodamine 6G

Pigment Name

BR1-Rhodamine 6G

Pigment Type

organic, fluorone dye

Chemical Formula



Rhodamine 6G is a staining reddish-yellow pigment that has fluorescent properties. It is extremely soluble in both water and alcohol. Fluorescent molecules absorb light at one wavelength and emit light at a longer wavelength.


Rhodamine 6G, like all fluorescent dyes, is not considered permanent, however it is reported  to have high stability for a fluorone dye.


Rhodamine 6G is toxic, however it can be biologically inactive and hence non-toxic in a lake pigment form.


Rhodamine dyes are often used for microscopy in the biological sciences. Rhodamine 6G is often used as a laser dye.
