Lithopone

img

Lithopone is a white pigment, a mixture of barium sulfate and zinc sulfide. It is used in interior paints and in some enamels.

Wooden artifacts are treated with zinc sulfate and barium sulfide, which undergo ion exchange reaction to form the aforementioned precipitates, which render a marble-like finish to the wooden piece.
