"Perfect Black! The perfect black with shimmer! I love it!" - Quen
A black grey with great luster just like a black pearl. A lustrous and opalescent mica that adds the mysterious accent you might be looking for. If you are looking for black, check out our Wicked Black mica or use black iron oxide or Activated Hardwood Charcoal (depending on your medium) for a pure black.

Bath Bomb Notes
To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight. This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.
I used the Black Oyster Mica as a swirl in my Starry Night soap and it is beautiful. It took 2 attempts though, the first time I did not use quite enough and it came out kind of a charcoal color. I just added another tsp to my next batch and it was a perfect shimmery black.
Love this color it's such a great black, looks great in my jewelry pieces.
Beautiful color! It’s really Smokey
I am so happy with this mica. We were looking for a smokey grey without the use of black oxide or activated charcoal, and this is it! It’s perfect!
I bough this color to aid in my galaxy bath bombs. The color is great. Once the color dispersed in the water It felt like I was in space. Will buy again!
