Orpiment is known for its strikingly bright yellow color, though it can also be bright orange or lustrous brown. The name Orpiment is derived from the Latin Auripigmentum, meaning gold pigment, in reference to its color and historical use as a golden-yellow pigment. Orpiment is often associated with bright red Realgar and may form in strikingly colored and unique mineral combinations. 

Orpiment contains a significant amount of poisonous arsenic and is itself somewhat toxic. Washing hands is recommended after handling Orpiment specimens, especially if powdery.
