Hey, I've been there, the Falu copper mine, all the little red houses 
in Sweden are painted with paint from that mine. I've never associated 
it with any other colour than red though. If I'd known when I was there
as a tourist, that I was trampling the ground that Spad paint (might have)
come from!
