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.

"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."
—Kelly W. (verified)

If you are looking for deeper black, check out our Wicked black mica, or try some black iron oxide or activated hardwood charcoal (depending on your medium).

Additional Information:

  • Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • To use in bath bombs or other bath products (water applications), we recommend using polysorbate 80 at a rate of approximately 2% of your total batch weight (dry and wet ingredients). This should allow the color to disperse evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of color around the tub.

Love it!

This was my first time trying Black Oyster and it did not disappoint. I make cold process soaps and won't use anyone other than Mad Micas! I'm looking forward to the cut!

Kathleen Contrino

Mad micas is the best mica out there

Terri Muraida

This works just as well as activated charcoal but has just a hint of shimmer to it. It was awesome in our Halloween soaps

Lana McCutchen
