    Some people say it should always be white, when burned, and when cooled. Is this correct?

    Well, any colours mean impurities, and there is no exact way of telling what those are (for anyone without very expensive analysis equipment and mean chemistry skills). So it could mean bad. However, not necessarily as it could be very pure in the sense of un-cut, with minor colour left over from the cook.

    Better off not taking it if swiy isn't sure about it, but really anything swiys get comes off the street anyway so you can never really know about quality.

    Swiv, when she used to smoke meth, got it in an assortment of lovely colors. Light rust, white, pinkish, yellow, light brown and the weirdest was blue. All of 'em were meth. All of 'em smoked the same and all of them worked. Swiv heard that the colors were just the impurities and/or due to the crap it was cut with/made with.

    SWIM = someone who is not me, SWIY = someone who is not you.

    It is a practice which is part of the rules to follow on this forum to avoid admitting any illegal acts, and hence to attract less attention from law enforcement. Note that you don't have to say swim specifically, you could talk about a dream, or an animal you met, or anything else really, as long as you don't admit doing something illegal. (Grey-area drugs and drugs which are illegal in some places but not others count for everyone).

    Creamy yellow - means the chemist added litele more thane needed h2so4
    Pink and red – too much h2so4
    Brown – was Dried at a heat
    Gray – too much H3PO4

    So what would make it blue? Swivy once had blue meth. It was a ligh blue as a solid and a deeper blue when a liquid. What was that about?

    Swivy was not so cautious in her meth days. She was on mars most of the time, so she didn't give a crap, so long as it got her high. Now she only uses the pharmie stuff. Clean, consistent and cheap.

    If she were still using street shit, she'd probably use the OP's stuff. She wouldn't have cared, so long as it got her high. Swivy was pretty dumb back then.

    The blue color is from the antihistamines. When the pseudo isnt cleaned properly antihistamines such as loratidine, phenidamine and promethazine are carried over.
    When reduced these compounds usually turn dark blue or gray.
    Though lithium is blue when dissolved, it wouldnt remain so in a finished product. The moment lithuim reacts with oxygen it breaks down rapidly in an exothermic reaction.
    Red or brown color is usually (but not always) caused by a migration of the hcl salt, resulting in a (brownish) free-base oil.

    To answer swiys question, assuming "it" is methamphetamine.

    Pure product is crystalline white and burns with no residue.

    SWIM thinks it could be aluminum, lithium or zippo benzin leftovers , so it`s not recommended to use blue meth or amph

    Many possibility that can lead to blue colour, for example swim once had bought a muriatic acid that is blue colour that mean the acid got impurities inside, after adding acid to the water and extract the free base meth from the non-polar solvent and evapourate off the water and use acetone to crush the crystal out and after filter away the acetone, swim crystal is still taint with a light blue colour, swim can crush the big crystal and use more acetone to wash off the colouring and impurities. Most cooks don't bother to wash and do a recrystalize, that why most of the meth on the street contain many impurities in it.

    5 years of meth use, although not scientific, has taught me this;

    All shard(s) is bad.
    All shard(s) is good.
    All powder is bad.
    All powder is good.
    Some shard, some powder is bad.
    Some shard, some powder is good.
    Blue is bad.
    Blue is good.
    Brown is bad.
    Brown is good.
    Orange is bad.
    Orange is good.
    Pink is bad.
    Pink is good.
    Seeming to get more than what you paid for is bad.
    Seeming to get more than what you paid for is good.
    Seeming to get less than what you paid for is bad.
    Seeming to get less than what you paid for is good.

    You get my point.

    Smoke it, rail it, bang it, plug it...whatever you do and find out.

    Swim got some blue and thought it was bunk. Everyone says different. No telling. Once in a dream my cat put pink food coloring in it which made it no stronger or better. A mental thing swim guesses.

    swim use to get ink and blue stuff all the time and it was really good...
    mostly the blue stuff would get me so spadaked out that swim would talk to himself and his shadow as a friend!

    altho swim was doing acid while doin meth so i dont know if that would be the cause of it...

    the pink stuff was a lil better then the clear crytals but it did the job...

    ive heard so many thing about why there are colors in it, swims cook told me that she would just add kool aid while it was drying to give it and extra cool look...i call bs on that but she made it and swim smoked it so i dunno...

    Swim has heard that when it actually burns down to a piss-yellowish color before re-crystalizing it's called "lemon drop" meth.. which is good, but swim doesn't have as much experience with this as others.
