Lakes are organic pigments made by absorbing a dye onto a substrate such as Alumina hydrate or Barium sulphate. They are dispersible (but not soluble) in both water and oil. Lakes will give a matte colour but are much more vibrant than oxides.

Lakes will have a mineral in their name, e.g. Barium, this is the substrate onto which the dye has been absorbed
