History : Yellow ocher is one of the first pigments used by man. The first ocher sticks found date back 400 000 years ! The dark yellow ocher JFLES (Dark Yellow Extra Extra Washed) is extracted in the quarry of Ocres de France company, in Gargas, Vaucluse. It is found in an ore and all of its production consists in recovering this pure ocher through a long process of extraction, separation, washing, settling, drying and grinding. It is also with the dark yellow ocher that the red ocher is made by calcining it. This pigment is the "famous" product which has made the reputation of Ocres de France. The dark yellow ocher JFLES is also known as "yellow ochre of Vaucluse".
