Hard to beat a dark aqua blue - it really is a beautiful colour - and so Marine is no exception.
From the left, two self-coloured beads, and on the right, a clear core. This dark aqua is really dark, and shines over clear.
With a strong backlight - it's really wonderful. I didn't have any problems with it bubbling or boiling, but I generally don't with aquas. My technique actually works for me in this case - or whatever it is that I do that no one else is doing.
And here's a decorative doo-dad - the colour is really wonderful.
And again - backlit. Ooops - some heat cracks in that - let it cool too much. Damn.
