The thing is, I'm not getting frit chunks. Only the very first time I introduced it to the flame did a couple of pieces fly off. After that, I start it way back in the flame, usually while I'm melting something else down and then I gradually bring it in closer and closer. Sometimes this can take up to 2-3 minutes!

After the color has become devitrified, it looks like Green Tea to me.

I sent Natasha a note and she has already phoned me back, but I was not available. She said she was going to test this color herself. She had not tested this one yet.

I'm amazed that some people had no problems working this color. I'm really a tenacious person and very patient (when it comes to melting glass), but when glass doesn't melt and then it's devitrifying, I don't know what else to do (other than to encase it).
