2023 Test Batch KRX-897, is a blue silvered opal. Silvered Opals are R/T glasses. R= reduce. T = technical, in this case the T is for opacifying in the kiln.
We recommend using moderately thin layers of the color and limiting annealing to 920°f for 1 hour to preserve the misty Opal effect.
The pictured bead has a core of Zephyr with a thin layer of KRX-897 encased in Zephyr, with reduced KRX-897 scrollwork.
