Default light turquoise vs dk sky blue?

Hi folks.

I ordered some effetre light turquoise and just received some dark sky blue pastel instead.

While they look alike in rod form, I somehow don't believe that will be the case once used. The pictures online look different to me.

Can anyone provide some insight please? I'm trying to decide whether to send it back or not.

Thanks!

Cheryl

Depending on what you are doing with them, it may be OK. I could go do a small melt to see the reaction of each if you needed it with say, ivory, etc.
Oh, wait. Light turq, vs Dk Sky? I can go take a pic of the rods right now if you want.

if you are curious as to how lt turquoise versus dark sky blue are in beads, the plain spacers in this photo are light turquoise and the base of the larger beads are dark sky blue.
light turquoise looks greener and dk sky blue is more blue. These beads are etched
sorry the pic is so small...can't figure out how to make them larger and stay within the size requirement

I like to mix the two colors when making fake turquoise beads

thanks everyone...it looks like the rods were just not labeled correctly. Deonne at Frantz has confirmed that I really did receive the light turquoise which is great because it's one of my favorite colors!

Dark sky blue appears to be very much darker of Eileen's picture is true to color.

Thanks!

Cheryl

The dark sky and the dark turquoise are very very close.
