Via Pers probably from an Ind language, cf. Skr tutthā ‘blue vitriol (cupric sulfate), used as eye drops’. The Ar word is the source of words for ‘zinc (oxide)’ in some Eur langs.

▪ Brockelmann1895: Syr tūtiyā ‘antimon’
▪ from Pers tūtiyā , from Skr tutthā – en.wiktionary (07Jan2016)#tutty.
▪ Fr tut(h)ie 1256 tutie , 1432 tuthie . From Ar tūtiyāʔ «tutie, zinc, oxyde de zinc», probably itself a loan from an Ind lang, cf. Skr tutthā «vitriol bleu (sulfate de cuivre), utilisé comme collyre» – TLF.
▪ Engl tutty (a powdered form of impure zinc oxide used for polishing) from Fr tutie (cf. also Sp tutia , atutia ), from Lat tutia , from Ar tūtiyāʔ , from Pers tūtiyā , from Skr tutthā – en.wiktionary (07Jan2016).1
▪ Lokotsch1927#2120: Ar tūtiyāʔ ‘zinc, zinc oxide’ [perh. from an Ind lang, ZDMG L: 650; cf. also Grk toutía ; in the East formerly often used as remedy against eye diseases], also Tu; hence Rum tutea ‘zink oxide’, Span Port atutia , Cat tutia , Fr tutie , tuthie ‘id.’; Pol tucyja ‘Art Zinkkalk’; Engl tutty ‘zink oxide’ [used for cleaning]. – From Pers tūtyānāk ‘like tutia’ [s. De Sacy ChrAr III, 44:2; 4529/442, on Ar tūtiyāʔ ] developed the Engl tutenag ‘Indian zinc; alloy from copper, nickel and zinc, for cutlery’; Fr toutenague , tintenague , Port tutenaga ‘id’.
1. But Engl tutenag ‘crude zinc’, (directly?) from Tamil thuthanaagam ‘raw zinc’ – OxEnglDict.
