Description from Double Helix:
Melia 2 is a chrome-free reformulation of Melia. A teal version of the Arke, Iris, and Iaso family. Different metallic effects are possible depending on the reduction techniques you use. Melia 2 retains its luster under clear encasement. An opaque Celadon Blue can develop with extended annealing, about one hour at 950F. Lower annealing temperatures and/or shorter times maintain the transparent teal.
For all reduction techniques, cool the glass before reducing and keep the glass from overheating (turning orange).
Rainbow iridescent; use a large brush reduction flame, briefly pass the glass right through the candles, repeating until the colors develop. Mirrored silver luster; rotate the bead further out in a reduction flame. Repeat until the desired luster is visible.
Textured satin; repeatedly pass the bead through the very farthest reaches of the reduction flame without letting the bead get hot again.

This glass is excellent for glass bead making and other types of glass lampworking, and is compatible with other glass rods that have a coefficient of expansion of "104".
