Cold Characteristics

Opaque, dark purple.

Working Notes

Torch: Gold Purple in rod form becomes lighter in color once flameworked. When molten, this glass has a low viscosity and can be quite soft, which may result in a blurred edge where it meets other glasses.

 Kiln: Not recommended for kilnforming.

Other

The name "Gold Purple" comes from the gold that is used as an ingredient in the manufacturing process.

Frit made from cadmium or gold base glasses may show some variation in color within the grains, which can be more noticeable in the larger grain sizes. This is due to the wide range of color acceptability in these glasses.
