This brilliant blue-green color was extremely popular in the mid-1800s. Because it was cheap to manufacture, it was not only used as an artist paint, but as a household paint and was widely used for patterned wallpaper.  Unfortunately, the paint was made with poisonous arsenic. This made damp rooms, where the arsenic would be turned into a gas by the mod living in the wallpaper paste, a death trap.  Napoleon’s death in exile on St. Helena was possibly hastened by his exposure to the Emerald green wallpaper in his favorite room.
