Vetro 990: Honey Crunch
Vetro 990 Honeycrunch is a transparent amber with a white core.
I suppose you could slice it up for murrini if you wished.
I was hoping for extreme drama streakiness - maybe like a streaky ivory - but it actually looks pretty much exactly like what you'd expect from topaz over white. Although it does look more like topaz and ivory. It doesn't really show as white.
When making the beads - it certainly looked extremely streaky - huge contrasting streaks - but the beads that came out of the kiln seem less dramatic.
But still very nice.
I've seen some issues with some of these streaky odd lots and encasing - so I encased this spacer and it seems fine.
And finally, with Hades on top - super heated. Just because. ;-)
Pretty nice colour - bet I could make great horses with this.
