Jinx is our first silvered opal. This opal produces a range of misty opal blue and blue-green tones. The luster is best left exposed, and can be silver, gold, or iridescent depending on flame characteristics. Same as test batch ELX-891
For Best Results: Higher temperatures and longer annealing times can initiate further opacification of the opal. Encasing the Opal will also add heat and time so adjust your annealing accordingly or plan on having more opacity. We recommend using moderately thin layers of the color and annealing to 925°f.
The pictured bead has a core of Jinx encased in Zephyr, with reduced Jinx scroll work.
Our second quality rods are less than perfect in shape. They may be too large, too small, too short, chipped, twisted or have an inclusion. They have all passed both our compatibility test and our color test, just not our pretty rod test.
