Default what to get for starting out with boro.

I wanted to dip my hand in it to see if I liked working with boro..I have the tip I need for my national 8m and oxygen concentrater. Im looking to do beads. Im not interested in marbles or sculptural work. What would be some good colors to start with?

Clear, NS Amber Purple and white. You can do a lot with just that to find out if you like it. AP is a good color to learn about haze, flame striking, kiln striking, temps and times.
