And as someone who hasn't had this problem with any other color, I just can't figure out what's going on. I've kept it as cool as possible, and tried to keep it out of the flame, but it takes time to melt it all in and that's when it gets the streaks of devi. I've tried the frit method too and had the same problem on half of the piece. It came out a gray color instead of green. Thanks though!
gray? sounds like your reducing it which will cause problems with most aventurines.
