A rich brown, slightly darker than Butterscotch and lighter than Umber, which will compliment Reds, such as Deep Red or Tomato Red. This opal maintains its striking colour after full firing.
May react with:
Copper, Lead, Silver
Opalescent. Slight small mottle and orange-peel texture.
At full fuse and capped with clear glass, the mottling may remain but become faint in transmitted light. Lighter wisps may appear in reflected light. When uncapped, the mottling tends to even out and the colour becomes more consistent and even.
This style is not suitable for kilncasting because it can become incompatible when held at high temperatures for an extended period.
