It is a dark purple - mostly reads as opaque, but has a translucent quality to it.
From the left, self-coloured, over clear, and self coloured. The rightmost bead (with less re-heating) - is quite a bit darker.
This rather handsome bead is a core of Vineyard, rolled silver foil and melted in, trailed with something that I'm not quite sure what it was - I thought it was ivory, but I may have picked up Desert Pink or Eff Petal Pink. Final step - encased in Zeus.
I am not happy with these - but it's not the fault of the glass. Please don't judge.
