There are enough to make the difference between what happens and a "continuous spectrum" of interest only to a person who wants to split half-hairs into microns.......Originally Posted by Mcgyver
By observation..... there does not seem to be a sharp line, there is a "transition region".... Possibly that is due to microscopic interspersed areas changing. Possibly THAT is in turn caused by intermediate temperatures..... that is certainly what it looks like.Originally Posted by Mcgyver
By reasonable good sense..... it is a chemical reaction, so it is some form of equilibrium..... and typically will have some range of conditions over which the equilibrium "tilts" from one to the other..... Can of course be small, but apparently is not, since there is a visible transition region in most cases.
The entire process is not one calculated to give a "slidebar" choice of colors..... that you can get any shade of...... The 8 different varieties you yourself posted is sufficient proof that there is a goodly range of color, never mind the "half and half" intermediates.Originally Posted by Mcgyver
There are several, and some gradations of each..... Yellow-brown, purple, blue.......... with gradations of "light straw", "dark straw", etc..... your OWN picture and the H-D plaque picture both show that....Originally Posted by Mcgyver
The ASM list you yourself posted shows 8 different colors or gradations...... Should be enough for anyone, and DEFINITELY not "only a couple that you'll see", as you state in the quote.
Perhaps, if there are only a "couple" that will be seen, you would like to point out which two of the eight choices in YOUR posted ASM list are the only "couple" you will (ever) see?
