Han purple is a synthetic pigment that was developed in ancient China and used for artistic and decorative purposes.

It has a dark blue hue that is close to indigo, but it is sometimes called purple because it is a color between red and blue.

Han purple is composed of barium, copper, silicon, and oxygen, and has a chemical formula of BaCuSi2O6.

It has some unusual physical properties, such as losing a dimension and making waves go two-dimensional under certain conditions.

Han purple was first used in the Western Zhou period (1045–771 BC) and continued to be popular until the end of the Han dynasty (circa 220 AD).

It was mainly applied to ceramic wares, wall paintings, and bronze vessels.

Han purple is not a natural pigment, but a synthetic one that was created by heating and grinding various minerals and metals.

The exact process of making Han purple is still not fully understood, but it involves a high temperature of about 1000 °C and a low oxygen environment.

Han purple is a rare example of a pigment that contains a metal-metal bond, which makes it more unstable than Han blue, another synthetic pigment that has a similar structure but a different chemical formula.

Han purple can decompose over time and form red copper oxide, which gives it a purple appearance.
