Almandine with gold.

"Almandine is another cloudy transparent. It’s the same as Lake Baikal but with way more red pigment which has resulted in this burgundy kind of colour. Unusual and very nice. Again, no working issues. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.

"I made one big bead with Almandine wrapped on itself, on Effetre white, on Effetre super clear and on Effetre black. It turned out interesting but for me, it’s a muddy color so not a favorite."
Jenefer Ham
"Almandine is one of what CiM call their Cloudy transparent range. Cloudy transparents are clear glass rods that contain pigments in colours that you just don't normally see in the 104 glass palette. The colour of Almandine makes me think of mulled wine or lipstick." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Almandine is a dark rich red wine colour. Would be nice to have this as a regular colour."
Suzy Hannabuss
"Almandine looks like a muddy version of purple. It flowed easily over a white blown glass vessel. On the plus side, it was not shocky poppy."
