My apologies here, I shouldn't have just guessed about that 1-2% addition of chrome. It had been a while, and I might have been thinking of a different melt, but went back to my notes today which say I used 0.2% dichromate in the mix. But just to re-explain, I did not see any of this devit or whatever the hazing is on murrini made with my 0.2% green. I did however, see it on murrini made with both one of the Gaffer greens and one of the Reichenbach greens. I'd imagine the chrome content was higher than mine in these commercial bar-colors, not to mention the different bases. I usually go for a 'light-wash' of density in my transparent colors that I've melted, versus a higher density that might be more well-suited for making color bars.
