CiM 709 Truffle Ltd Run

Truffle - a super-dark grey. The two beads on the left are self-coloured, the one on the right is very thin, over clear. It looks purple when hot, like most transparent greys do, but cooled to a smokey colour.

The far left bead is much more opaque than the centre bead - despite them both being solid colour. I think, as it was the first one made, that it got more heating and cooling cycles, so it could be that this glass goes more opaque as it gets worked. It would be interesting to try it in a sculptural use.
