"Ra is a beautiful colour similar to dark ivory. A slight downside is I did have the rod cracking as I worked it." – Suzy Hannabuss

"For me Ra is very similar to Banana Cream. Very beautiful beige color but I have a lot of Banana Cream."

"Ra is a creamy opaque pale yellow. From left to right these beads are: Ra with silvered ivory stringer wraps, Ra with Efftere dark turquoise dots, Ra with Montezuma wraps, and Ra / Montezuma with silvered ivory wraps. Ra is similar to Cake Batter but as you can see with the half and half heart on the far right, will take on a deeper caramel blush which reminds me of Jupiter Storm."

"This glass looks like a slightly yellow ivory in the rod, similar to paler batches of Effetre opal yellow. It works nicely in the flame, no shocking or bubbling. As you heat it the glass looks pale but strikes back to yellow sometimes with a pink blush just like opal yellow. Left to right: Ra alone, Ra with silver foil melted on the surface [no reaction but a pretty finish], Ra with dots of Triton [these were small dots and spread more than I expected, the Triton has reduced to a paler shade than it would on ivory], Ra with dots of Aurae [again more spread than expected and a paler finish on the Aurae], Ra with dots of copper green and EDP [etched, etch was taken well], and Ra with dots of EDP [same sort of results that would be found with opal yellow, spreading of colours with lines between]."
