Oracle-804.AuOpl, a pink fast opal. This opal is a striking glass that produces a range of misty opal pink tones. It easily resets to crystal clear, initiating the striking process. After resetting, it will cool to a faint translucent opalescence. This opal is “fast” compared to our regular oracle opal, and it will develop substantial opacity when annealed at 920F.
For Best Results: Reset the Opal before annealing at 920°F for up to two hours. A translucent, opalescent strike will occur at these annealing temperatures. Higher temperatures and longer annealing times will initiate further striking of the opal. Encasing the Opal will also add heat and time so adjust your annealing accordingly or plan on having more opacity.
The Beads: the horizontal bead is a wigwag bead with Oracle-802.AuOpl and Zephyr. The vertical bead is a wigwag of Zephyr and cane of 802.AuOpl encased in Zephyr.
The Oracle Project – responsibly manufactured, low toxicity glasses made in the USA, without Antimony, Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead, Nickel, or Selenium. Balancing viscosity curves, opacity, tonality, surface tension, and thermal shock resistance, to create glass that is a pleasure to work with in the flame.
The Oracle Project Test Batches – offered direct from the glassmaker to the artisan. Labeled with batch date and formula number, with a suffix to indicate glass family type example, 740.opl.
