Default Can we play Name That Glass Rod?

Hi all,

I've got some kind of turquoise that I bought several years back, and I no longer have a label associated with them. If anyone thinks they know what this glass may be, I'd love to hear!

I posted two pictures, one to just show the color, and another that shows the satiny sheen that shows when the rod is viewed at an angle, in case that helps narrow it down.

Thanks for any help!

The first photo puts me in mind of CIM celadon. It is a bit greener than turquoise.

I think CIM Mermaid is darker, I am leaning towards CIM Celadon. Do you have pic of it melted?

it looks just like my CIM Smurfy. I use it as a turquoise subsitute, it doesn't get the grey ick as much so it is better to use for beads you don't want to etch.

Another vote for Smurfy, or even Freeman.

Either way, it's CIM for sure, check out their color chart.

I'm leaning towards CIM celadon. Here are some beads with the mystery color:
