CiM Berry Punch is a Limited Run, and is a medium amethyst colour. I haven't tested CiM Simply Berry yet, but this colour seems somewhat lighter and pinker than that one. I haven't tested the Effetre Amethysts yet either, but in the rod, this colour seems less pink than those ones.

On top of Berry Punch, silver disperses and in some places takes on a blue colouration. When the silver is reduced an encased, it looks both blue and grey and sort of pretty.

Both reducing and striking silver glass do OK on top of Berry Punch. These results are not overwhelmingly beautiful, but they show that Berry Punch can hold and help both striking and reducing silver glasses. The results for the striking silver glass aren't as beautiful as with some other colours (e.g. Dark Grass Green) but they are significantly nicer than what I've managed on many of the other colours I've tried.

Berry Punch and Copper Green have a bit of a reaction. When Berry Punch is on top of Copper Green, it develops a light outline. When Copper Green is used on top of Berry Punch, it develops a thin, shiny outline. Copper Green gets a greyish sheen when used with Berry Punch -- or perhaps it is more accurate to say that Berry Punch is not one of the colours that seems to help stave this off.

Peace and Opal Yellow both separate on top of Berry Punch, developing a pronounced, textured outline. In the case of Peace, the outline is somewhat shiny.

I like this colour a lot. It's an airy purple, it's well behaved, and it has some fun reactions. The colour of it reminds me of purple Gatorade.
