Raman spectra obtained from yellow pigment particles on JP1082: acquired from yellow pigment particles in the (a) orange area and (b) yellow area. Peaks at 66, 105, 136, 154, 179, 202, 291, 310, 354, and 381 cm−1 in a are typical of natural orpiment. Peaks at 193, 232, 493 cm−1 and the broad band at 330–340 cm−1 in b are typical of artificial arsenic sulfide. The peak at 471 cm−1 is from elemental sulfur
