Purple Sable - Trautman
Purple Sable is a very unusual amber/purple with a coffee-colored base and a light aventurine sparkle. The best reactions occur in a mid-range of temperatures, not too hot or too cool. Purple Sable shows different effects in different flame atmospheres - reduction, oxidation, and encasement.
For a nice opalescence, trap the reduction effects under a layer of clear. Blues, purples, greens, ambers, and more can be produced on the surface of this glass.

Lots of color
by Phill A -
Penumbra exhibits all of the colors of the phenomenae from which which it takes it's name. The shadow cast by the earth or moon over an area experiencing a partial eclipse. Rich deep blues, purples and surprising browns.
Sable is ok

This color is similar to Penumbra, except that it exhibits subtle coffee or light brown tones. Color overall is very dark blue with a little bit of silvering. Creamy texture, easy to work in either oxy or reducing flame. Good for blown or solid work.
