"Plum is much paler in rod form than as finished beads, a pretty mid purple that can be struck to a couple of different shades as you can see clearly in these heart beads. The subtle colour variation makes me think of Lavender Jade." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"I did a series of marbles with Messy opal colors [here shown: Plum] and Peace based on the curdling effect that those glasses have together."

"The rods are, from the top, Grape Ape, Evil Queen, Plum, and Cranberry Pink- 1. The beads are in the same order, from the top." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"This is a totally yummy glass - slightly translucent in the rod - and if you use it thick - it will be more or less opaque - two beads on the left - but if you layer it thin over clear - oh boy - a lovely opaly plum colour." Read more at DragonJools blog.

“Out of the nine Messy opals that I tested, five of them remained translucent and they were Plum, Rose Quartz, Ghee, Chalcedony and Crocus.” Read more about keeping opal glass translucent at the Frantz Art Glass blog.
