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).

Usage Rate CP Soap 2 tsp per lb of oils

Ingredients Mica (CI 77019), titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxide (CI 77499)
  • Usage rates can be varied to lighten or darken hue. Listed amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.
  • White MP base will always create a pastel form of the color due to titanium dioxide in base.
  • 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.
  • Sample bags contain approximately one teaspoon.
  • For mica-specific information not available on this page, please consult provided data sheets.
  • Larger sizes are available. Please email colors@madmicas.com for pricing and information.

Best black mica!!

Used this in countless soaps!

I am so surprised with this color! I thought it would turn grey which is why I normally use black oxide, but I decided to chance it and boy am I glad I did! Make sure you follow the usage rate directions and you will have an amazing bar of soap!

Perfect black for my Frankenstein soap!

I used Andy The Money and Black Oyster for my Frankenstein soap. While the green was a bit darker than I thought it would be, the Black Oyster was perfect! MM you nailed it once again!

Great Black color

I am currently using this black painting bathbombs and I love it. I have other blacks that look more Greyblack but this one is the best. Will be ordering more for sure.

Love this color in my cp soaps!

Love this black! I mix with a little black iron oxide and get a pretty shimmery black.
