Aladdin Ltd Run (511620)<br />A purple moonstone.

A purple moonstone.




"Aladdin is a mysterious purple which breathes new life in the flame. The rod appears slightly opal and muted, however the melt tells a different story. The purple glass becomes transparent with a kiss of vibrant magenta. Aladdin is a lovely component for murrini. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." – Heather Sellers

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Aladdin was engineered in response to color requests for a purple moonstone.
I think Aladdin could be called a light version of Simply Berry. – Jolene Wolfe

"The two spacers on the right are etched – you can see they didn’t etch well in the time I left them in, when it was fine for the opaques coming later. This wasn’t entirely surprising, as it tends to happen with moonstones and more transparent opalinos." Read more at Heather's blog.

"Aladdin appears to be a transparent plum, but under a bright light the glass is a rich, slightly transparent marsala with a cranberry glow. When encased with Effetre Clear, the color appeared to lighten. When paired with EDP frit, the depth of Aladdin's color variation is lovely. Any hazing in the test bead is due to EDP and not related to Aladdin's quality."
