4mm to 2.75 mm 1075 Alumina makes it "frosty" looking compared to 1 micron diamond. This is about 8-10 cycles of Lemon Juice etching with a rubdown of 1 um Alumina. I guess you could call it a Alumina Lemon finish.

It’s very similar to Aerospace Metallography polishing. The spread and the smoky appearance of the hamon in such a thin section 4mm to 2.75 mm 1075 is what makes this unique. Timing and clay in the quench is everything in such a thin blade.
