"Over white and over clear - it's not too spectacular, and the moonstone translucent glasses tend not to be - they need mass to make the full effect." Read more at DragonJools blog. – Dwyn Tomlinson

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Gooseberry is a moonstone and should be worked like Cirrus.
Please read our Cirrus page for working tips.
"Looks like a moonstony Mojito! Keeps its lovely haze by working cool. Keep the glass temperature just enough to melt the glass and make it move." – Genea Crivello-Knable
"Gooseberry is a very, very stiff glass. It works much like the old Depression glass I have used for marbles. It can take lots of heat and shapes up beautifully." – Chris Haussler
  • Special thanks to Genea Crivello-Knable for providing the photo in this section.

“Gooseberry is very similar to Mojito in hue, but is milkier. Its reactions are also fairly similar to the reactions I observed when I tested Mojito, however they are more intense... Gooseberry is a very reactive colour.” Read more on Melanie’s blog.

"The 2 beads on the right were not struck but the one on the left is more milky because I struck it one time."
Gloria Sevey
"Gooseberry causes a white reaction line with fine Reichenbach Deep Black stringer and dots. It also causes dots made with silvered ivory stringer to pool in the center."
Jolene Wolfe
"Gooseberry is stiff and hard to melt and darkens in colour when melted too hot. Work it cool for a lighter colour."
