Peach silver opal

Does anybody know what the potential of this bar is? I've never used it but heard great things. If anyone has suggestions or photos of what it looks like I would very much appreciate to see them.
Thanks

Silver Colors

The one piece I've made from the stuff is nice enough, but the character isn't there. The transmitted color is a nice light amber (and could probably use a nice white backing). The reflected color is a milky light yellow. Is it supposed to be uncased?

I also have some of the silver blue. It's acted similarly: Kind of a dark aqua reflected, with a pale green transmitted. It's a bit more opaque than the peach.

Use more. Keep it pretty cold.

As a rule of thumb, I use 4 times as much bar when I use silver opals or calcedony colors.

You will never get anything to look as good as it does in bar form though...

I am with Eben here on how much you use. If it thins out it turns a sort of dull pink without swirls...think it is all over the place swirl wise. Whatever you think is enough double it.

If I made a pint beer tumbler I would use about an and inch and half.
