For silvered shards, the ones with a medium amount of amber showing gave the results closest to vetrofond. I'll post pics when I either 1) figure out how to take bead pictures with our d80 or I get a new bead camera. My bead camera died over the weekend.

The rod with the most amber mostly made a grey mess. I made a test bead last night and it turned out pretty well, and I've got a set in the kiln.

If the white part were more opaque, it would be awesome. I'll see what I can get with the camera tomorrow.
