It can range in color from a pale silvery blue to an opaque to a sea green all the way to cloudy gray. It is well suited for flame striking and produces wonderful results. Because it is so intense be sure to keep a hot oxidizing flame set. Reduction will affect the strike. Try it over Star White. Another excellent combination is Orange hobnails over the surface of Green Amber/Purple. There is a lot you can do with this color have fun exploring.
