I use the prescription Auralens with shade 3 or 4 flipup clipons. I found that 3 or 4 is too much for small stuff, but that the Auralens weren't enough for big stuff/cobalt work.

Moldavite works, but it isn't that great to look at. Kyanite works also, but I think it is just plain ugly

The green works well encased in clear. You can encase the purple in clear, but I haven't done any deep encasement with it, so I don't know how it works there. You may need to encase it regardless,...

A while back there was a batch of one of the GA oranges that was a wonderful kind of hot coral color. Unfortunately I haven't seen that color since.

I would either grind off the adventurine and then rework. Or reheat, and strip off the adventurine, add more color, and reshape. It is a nice marble and it would be worth saving.
