"Amethyst is lovely on silver."

All of the different shades on the Peace tube bead show the color variations well.

"Amethyst melted smoothly with no shockiness, but I had a lot of bubbles. It is a beautiful color. It is a very pretty base for the Val Cox Kings Robe frit blend. Amethyst created a very nice base for the stipple stitch in Iris."

"Amethyst is a nice light-medium purple tone. In rod form, it looks almost spot on as compared to the limited run 'Rose Tea', of which I was really excited for a possible replacement of. It's quite close, but it also seems to shift hues a bit depending on the lighting. In some lighting it looks like a lighter version of Rose Tea, but in others, like as in my photo, it shines more of a brighter purple with less of a brownish tone. It also melts wonderfully with no boiling at all."

"The colour soon builds up as you can see from the spacer beads [12 mm] next to the rods. It is slightly stiff to work with, so will be great for sculpture work, but is still lovely to encase with. Over Glacier it gives you beautiful pink tones."

"Amethyst is a pale pinky-purple, like a very diluted version of Your Majesty. Just like Your Majesty it was smooth to work with and there was no shocking or bubbling. CiM Amethyst is very clear which yeah, I know sounds really obvious when talking about transparent glass, but I mean it’s not at all foggy, wispy or bubbly. For these beads I used a small core of CiM Desert Pink encased with a heavy layer of the Amethyst. The decoration is Effetre White 204 and the spacers are ASK 104 Passionate Pink. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." See more at Laura's tumblr.

"A lovely mid amethyst hue that adds a lot of versatility when paired with other colours and silver glass. Fuss free with an easy melting point, no scumming or bubbling. Here the beads all have a base of Amethyst alongside Double Helix Aurae [bubble beads], Val Cox Lillie silver glass frit [electric hot pink] and Val Cox Ruby Extra Gold frit."
