Greenflash Powder
Just posting this so Mira can see where I'm going with it.  If I may I would also like to ask Judy's help with this, as she did ask me to consult her about alchemy.
Overview
Loved by gnomes young and old, the entertaining flames produced by this powder has its many uses.  The powder is favoured by the magical folk as a reagent for the popular fire spell Sparkling Stream, used by gnomes as pyrotechnic entertainment and sold by them for emergency signalling.  A relatively easy product to create with alchemy, this is often one of the first recipes taught to students of the Gnorath Alchemy Academy.

Description
Green grains larger than sand.

Method of Production

Areas of Production
There is a large industry for this powder in the gnomish city Gnorath; however, most production is done by Daran gnomes, as distribution is easier.  Being a relatively easy product to make, much is made by students of the Gnorath Alchemy School.

Usage
Reagent for Sparkling Stream – quicker than Malthanune powder
Signalling device
Entertainment - Used in fireflowers and also macanti tricks

History of the Industry
Later modified as a slow burning powder to colour torches, but with the introduction of gnomish smoke-less torches it became obsolete.  The original version is 

Lore and Legend
Some interesting details and creative touches can be added here. For example:

An E.E. for you to hide in there somewhere - the name of a gnome or gnomish family associated with the production of famous pyrotechnics ( (too technical - the word 'fireworks' is sanctioned by Tolkien, so I think we should be able to use it... or 'fireflowers', which I like even better):  FLADNAG.

Something rather like the following - what do you think?

"The Fladnag family has been manufacturing delightful fireflowers of all kinds for the last century.   From their popular and inexpensive children's 'Emerald Sparklers' which can be held safely in the hand, to their massive 'Gargantuan Fyrewyrm', only available by special commission, their products are always entertaining and usually reliable.  We have been asked not to mention 'Wotho's Birthday Conflagration', a night still infamous among the hobbits of XXX Shire, but we must reassure you that no lives have ever been lost in association with the Fladnag Fireflowers..."

:D
