Great reader submission: Copperhead

According to
"Egyptians worked with pure minerals for pigment and color. They mixed, pressed and broke down precious copper based minerals, such as malachite, along with carbon and manganese oxides to create colored powders used for face powders or eye colors."
I think I once read that chronic use of this mixture ended up causing mental problems for the people that used it...but maybe you already have to have mental problems to use it? Which comes first?
