I thought this seemed familiar.
Two years ago on the same news site:

Apparently the discovery was 2009.

And surely it is not the only blue in 200y. Maybe the only stable nontoxic inorganic blue in 200y?...

Good pick up j_sum1. 200+/-10 years, who's counting? It's for a blue pigment that gives permanent colour, not a dye. That's why it blew :D out to 200 years.
