Sample bags contain one generous teaspoon (approx. 3-4 g).
"Not just any yellow - The name of this mica is all the more appropriate because it's truly a special color. I tried it in CP soap at a maximum amount.... Pot O' Gold is so beautiful -- very sweet and buttery, but not pale... I agree completely with the reviewer who calls this a staple color." - Cid
We actually had to travel all the way to the end of the rainbow for this mica, but, it was well worth it!
As bright as the sun and possibly even more radiant, this glistening yellow-gold mica sparkles with the brightness and sheen of a genuine pot o' gold.

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 really have been enjoying this color. it is a true yellow gold with a beautiful shimmer in MP soap and it is a beautiful soft golden yellow payoff in CP. I'm absolutely glad that I picked this color up in the 1oz jar.
I just wanted to say I love this color, and the way my order was shipped. Thank you so much!
I combined this mica with my oils for c/p soap making but this one didn't mix very well. ):
It left spots in my soap.
Exactly as I expected. Beautiful.
