"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.

Soap Notes

Stable and true to color in hot process, cold process and melt & pour soap base (however, colors in white MP soap base appear more pastel-like).

Recommended usage rates in cold and hot process soap: 1-2 tsp. per lb of oils.

Recommended usage rates in melt & pour soap base: 0.5 tsp per lb of soap base.

Adjust to lighten or darken your desired hue.


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.

Beautiful color! It’s really Smokey

Beautiful Smokey Color

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!

Black Oyster Black Mica for Bath Bombs.

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!


I purchased the blues set and the black micas. The black I used as line between two colors and it’s perfect. Not to fine or to big have me an even line. The blues I did multi color CP blue lines with the colors and it worked out just like wanted. Great product, fast shipping! Thank you Mad Micas.

Not your mom's charcoal

Sparkle, deep dark sparkle. I paired this with a ghost type swirl done in charcoal and the sparkle contrast is amazing.
