"Jacaranda looks great by itself [top] but also makes a wonderful layering colour. The hearts here are made with Effetre dark teal [left] and Effetre mid purple [right] encased with Jacaranda. The lilac purple layer has given the darker core colours a real lift and the resulting hearts have a kind of gem-tone quality to them." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

"In the rod, Jacaranda looks like it might be a misty opal but when worked it turned quite transparent, still has a little haze to it though. Not hard to work with. A good amethyst translucent purple."

"Wow what a beautiful colour! Jacaranda is the transparent version of Wisteria [Misty] and Crocus [Milky]. Absolutely stunning and so smooth to work with."

"Jacaranda is a lovely purple in rod form and solid bead form. When layered semi-thinly over dichroic, it is an extremely pale purple. Not shocky and no issues with bubbling or scumming. Played nicely with dichroic and silver glass on surface."

"Jacaranda is a fabulous pale purple glass which is wonderful to work with. I tend to work hot and find many pale colours fussy and easy to boil but Jacaranda takes all the heat I can throw at it without any drama! Here is a close look at Jacaranda as spacers. It is such a beautiful bright spring time lavender purple." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Jacaranda is a masterpiece. The color is the same like Crocus and Wisteria but Jacaranda is almost transparent."
