Scandinavian red

At Falun, yellow ochre is extracted from an old copper mine. Once burnt, it is used in the composition of natural paints that protect wood found in houses (the ochre prevents rotting). Most of the output is locally used. One can find the well-known Falun red all over Scandinavia covering almost every building.
