The color change depending on the light and the angle of illumination. If we view it under natural light, the silver-white light spots will appear on the glazed surface of the pitch-black pottery. Under the studio light, it became purple-red light spots. In the evening, when shooting with the flashlights of two mobile phones, it has pink, red, and blue colors. It emits red light at 396 nanometers and blue light at 550 nanometers showed by the luminescence spectrum test by Tsinghua University. Yellow light and green light can be seen in the transition section. This amazing new ceramic variety has written a brand-new chapter for Chinese ceramics.
