MAGISTERY OF BISMUTH, or Spanish White. See BISM. TRISNITR. (Poisonous.) It is the trisnitrate of bismuth, produced in  a large quantity of water, when it falls down in the form of a white powder, which is thus prepares for the cosmetic known by the name of Pearl Powder. Take 3iv of the trisnitrate of bismuth, 3ij of fine starch powder; mix, and put into a a glass wide at top and narrow at bottom; pour in Ojss of proof spirit, and after shaking and stirring it, let it stand for two days to settle; then pour off the liquor and dry the powder by evaporation. Repeat this process thrice, and levigate what remains into an impalpable powder. It will be blackened by sulphuretted hydrogen gas, and it is not therefore proper to use it as a cosmetic when going into crowded rooms.

MALACHITE. Green Bice. A native ore of copper, being a hydrocarbonate of the peroxide, and employed by jewellers.
Imitated by exposing metallic copper to air and moisture, or from the persulphate by double decomposition. (R, PHILLIPS.)

MARINE GREEN. A pigment containing copper.

MARYGOLD. The flowers are said to be tonic. The petals are used to adulterate saffron.

MASSICOT. A yellow pigment prepared from lead by roasting or calcination.

MENISPERMIC ACID, procured from Coculus Indicus, is composed of malic and sulphuric acid with a bitter colouring matter. (VAUQUELIN.)

MINERAL GREEN. Green lake prepared with sulphate of copper, and being durable is excellent for house painting, but not so suitable for fine works. (FIELD.)

MINIUM, or Red Lead. Is the deutoxide of lead, which is prepared by calcining the semivitreous oxide of lead in a clear fire, till it is reduced to a red powder, which in medicine is used for making plasters, and for destroying pediculi; and in farriery for charges. Its chief use, however, is a cheap paint for gates, carts, and other things which do not require much nicery. It is also used to adulterate vermilion, &c.
Adulterated with Armenian bole, and other eaths, which may be discovered by fusing it on a bit of charcoal with the blow-pipe, when the minium will form metallic lead, and the earth will remain either in its coloured state, or reduced to whiteness.
Poisonous, producing excruciating colic, costiveness, twisting of the bowels, palsy of the limbs, and death. The best treatment is a smart dose of Epsom salts, the warm-bath, demulcent drinks, and bleeding, if necessary.
Test. Reduce it to the metallic form, as just directed, by means of the blowpipe; or sulphate of potass will precipitate it white; hydrosulphate of potass, black; and chromate of potass, yellow.

MONICON, or Damonico. A painter's orange colour, composed of terra di Sienna and Roman ochre burnt. A rich, durable, considerably transparent colour for water oil. It affords good flesh tints. (FIELD.)

MOUNTAIN GREEN. A native carbonate of copper combined with a white earth and mountain blue. It is used in house painting.
