This is the most Silver color I’ve seen on a PLA. Its shiny and looks great when printed. Prints really shine. This is my reference silver. This color reacts to UV light.

Polyalchemy was one of the first specialty filaments I purchased. I had to order it direct from China to obtain this new silk like appearance. Polyalchemy Elixir has a gorgeous shine which truly must be appreciated in person. Elixir can have a different appearance and shine depending on how hot and fast you print with it. Polyalchemy Elixir does tend to show seams a bit more than other filaments. You may want to spend a little extra time perfecting your print when using this filament. Polyalchemy comes on a plastic spool in 750g sizes. It used to come on 1KG spools for the same price
