My intention was like this:

As pure in shade as mother's blessing true, (so same color as milk)

And yet in form I'm still possessing, too; (so not liquid... The other way the line could be taken would be about origami, but that was just a secondary thought)

Partner both in math and drinking (math for math papers, drinking as in paper cups)

I was born of man's quick thinking (because truth be told paper kinda blows my mind still)

Lol. I saw people making it on tv once. The process is pretty impressive. Think it was a specialized kind though. Not good for mass production. Nice riddle.

Incidentally, the title was a hint too: plain in color, and also plain -->plane, since a piece of paper is flat.

Lol. That's what lead to one of the other guesses. Plain to see--> crystal clear.

Crystal would be fancier drinking cups though. And I couldn't quite call it white.
