This aptly named mica shares many of the qualities of the band it's named after. The heavy metal rock band is known for its fast tempos, lengthy instrumentals, and bold musicianship.
Metallica mica reflects the light to reveal a coppery red metallic sheen. A closer look exposes an intricate balance of sparkle and depth, reminiscent of the face-melting solos at a Metallica concert.
As always, all of our micas come in recyclable, sugar-free, gluten-free, fat-free, non-gmo, heart healthy no-mess jars, never bags (yay oceans!). Do not eat jars.

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.
