Manganese violet is a semi-opaque and somehow faint color. It is the reddest of violet colors, and is similar in tone to the more expensive cobalt violet. But it is a little less brilliant in shades and mix.
Manganese violet was developed in 1868 as an alternative to the expensive cobalt violet and was available as artist paint from the 1890th.
