Bullseye Gold Purple Opal Striker Double Rolled - 90 COE

Bullseye Gold Purple Opal Striker Double Rolled - 90 COE

Item# B033430
Great shade of Purple, November 11, 2012 4 stars
Pros
Upon firing turns a marvelous shade of tanzanite purple.
Cons
Very costly, as are most reds and purples
Other Thoughts
This glass is rather unusual, as in the description, in it's pre-fired form it looks med-blue, but when it is fired it turns into a lovely purple-blue, like a tanzanite color. It closely coordinates with Swarovski's Tanzanite color. Great glass to do smaller fusing projects like pendants and earring because higher costs. It is well worth it to make the investment, if you like the end color.
