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!

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 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
I love this color!! Basic brown with blues, purples, red, etc. It's a fantastic hidden rainbow.
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!
I love how this is two or three toned depending the angle and lighting. This color is amazing!
