New Blue: YInMn

YInMn Blue was discovered by a chemist at Oregon State University in 2009 and only became available as a pigment in 2016.

Now what does it stand for .. no not “Why in Minnesota”… though that would be hilarious…

But alas it stands for yttrium, indium, and manganese

About jasterling

One part of my life is in the science of anthropology and archaeology where I did comparative work. My other life that I am now pursuing is writing along the lines of fantasy/sci fi fictional writing as my one way to stay sane in this other insane world. Please enjoy the selections you will find in my blog.
