Orpiment is not realgar[edit]

I have removed the following text

Mixed with two parts of slaked lime, orpiment is still very commonly used in rural India as a depilatory. It is also used in tanning industry to remove hair from hides.

and placed an edited version in the entry for orpiment.--King Hildebrand 14:01, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

I have expanded the brief mention of the pyrotechnic uses of realgar, and clarified the obsolesence of a previously mentioned use.Bert2368 05:31, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
