This paper investigates, using only Raman spectroscopy, the spectral differences among the synthetic ultramarine blue (J. B. Guimet) and three natural ultramarine blues (lazurites) corresponding to three lapis lazulis from different geographical sources (Chile, Afghanistan and Siberia). The synthetic ultramarine blue used as reference pigment is the identified in an artwork created around 1917 by the Catalonian modernist painter Ramon Casas i Carbo. This synthetic pigment is compared with the three natural ultramarine blues and, in his turn, the latter are also compared each other. In order to quantify the spectral differences, a rigorous methodology based on the Euclidean distance between homologue spectral segments (or intervals) has been developed and presented here.
