Ochre is a natural clay earth pigment that has a mixture of ferric oxide and varying amounts of clay and sand.
It can range in color from yellow to deep orange or brown, depending on the amount of iron oxide-hydroxide (limonite) and other minerals it contains.

Ochre is one of the oldest known pigments used by humans for painting, dyeing, and decorating.
Ochre can also have different hues, such as red ochre (hematite-rich), purple ochre (larger particle size), sienna (manganese-rich), and umber (darker brown).

Ochre is a versatile and earthy color that can evoke warmth, nature, and history.
