An intense transparent purple.




"This dark, almost black transparent glass has a definitive purple base that is very obvious once you thin the glass by pulling a stringer. The base of the glass has a black look but in thin parts of the bead [around the bead hole] it is very apparent that the glass has a dense purple foundation." – Liz DeLuca

"I had high hopes for this glass- Dark Velvet- a transparent dark purple that reads as black when just lying around on the bench. Strongly backlit- it is a beautiful, intense, violet-purple. However, it melts out as a more traditional dark amethyst berry juice colour." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"The bead on the left is self-coloured, the next is over white, the next is over clear. It is purple when thinned out. Probably best for cored cane and shards. These uber-dark transparents would all work well as shards you know." Read more at DragonJools blog.
