Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).

Magic beans. Trade this beautiful mica for a beanstalk climb to a magical land, but make sure you save some for yourself. What may appear brown at first glance is actually a cavalcade of colors.

This mica is magic... Rays of blue and green and red shimmer in the sunlight and radiate from this full-bodied and lustrous shade. Quite spectacular. As Jack himself would agree, magic beans... a wise choice indeed!

Soap Notes

Cures an almost brick red in CP soap (see photo).

Usage rates in Cold Process soap: 1-2 tsp. per pound of oils.

Usage rates in Melt & Pour soap: 1/4-1/2 tsp per pound of M&P base.

Adjust these calculations to lighten or darken your desired hue. These amounts create bright colors with no colored suds.


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.

Not Polychromatic in Bath Bombs

I was really excited for this one, and had big aspirations for it in a bath bomb application. No matter what recipe we tried, we could not get a polychromatic effect in water. Will definitely save it to use for other projects, but bummed it didn't work for the bath. It left a purpleish/mauve colored water, and ring in the tub, even with Poly80 at varying rates

Worth your money

I love this color!! Basic brown with blues, purples, red, etc. It's a fantastic hidden rainbow.


Great color👍


I love this color! I just purchased and I’m almost out! Great color for ‘holiday deserts’! It worked wonderfully in my gingerbread soap and brown sugar fig soaps. Beautiful, rich color!

The depth of this color is ahhhmazing!

I love how this is two or three toned depending the angle and lighting. This color is amazing!
