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.
