If it looks like you're looking through a thin veil of water on the surface, it's alabastro. Could be dark pink opalino, but I'm going to say I think it's CIM Rose Quartz.

You'll get a faster response if you post the color name as well as the number, especially when it's an odd lot color. Any of the V-900 numbers are odd lots, at least they used to be.

Frantz had an odd lot of periwinkle a while back. He called it dark periwinkle. I think the number was 222. The original stuff was handpulled, but he's got machine pulled now.

Once you start using it, you'll regret parting with any of it! I vote for hanging onto it and figuring out which colors you love. Everyone has their own color favorites.
