I think you'll get the same intensity of color with half ( or less) of the Nd. Mine are always a strong purple ( or blue) but I don't know if the high potassium content in my glass is affecting that. I could send you a chunk of what mine looks like.

You may have gotten a great price on the neo, but you're still young. You will wind up buying more eventually. Next time it may not be so cheap. At this point I get to wonder about whether I've already had the worst injury I'll ever get doing this junk. I wonder whether the cadmium supply is really a lifetime one ( I think it is). I still hoard lead.
