(Lyhyet jutut) The blue color... The manzanita tree...

The Galaxy 7, 1876

The blue color sometimes produced in burning bread to ashes is attributed to the formation of ultramarine.


The manzanita tree, which grows in great numbers in California, is found to be the "host" of a species of coccus resembling the cochineal insect, from which carmine is obtained. It is thought this discovery may be put to practical use.
