Default Effetre Opalino Carnelian. In quest of resurrecting this discontinued glass.

It has been brought to my attention that Effetre Opalino Carnelian has been discontinued. WHAT?!! After having a brief discussion with Rachelle, we have come to the conclusion that a petition must be started in order to get this glass back into production. If anyone has any inside information as to whether Effetre has plans of marketing this glass under a new name, please chime in. I'm posting a picture of some beads made with the carnelian. Please feel free to post pictures of your beads made with this gorgeous glass.

Also help us get a message to our vendors by posting your interest here, so they can approach Effetre with a request to put this glass back into production. Thank you!

No Problem, Rachelle! I am still in such awe, that you can get an apricot color from this glass!

The body and head of this dragon was done with this glass. Although it is a pathetic attempt at a Moth dragon from the tut, I LOVE the range of colors you can get. I have about a pound of it that I am hoarding and hoping they bring it back.

Beatrix92, Your dragon still resembles one! He's pretty cool! It does show the capabilities of this color.

Paula, I was checking various vendors to see if anyone started selling it again. You were next on my list!

I don't know why they bring in new colors that are just a shade or two different that what we already have...but take away colors we don't have anything like.
Why do we need *Sand*, really? It looks like regular ivory to me.

I like carnelian. I used to use it to make flowers with when I made floral beads. Love the variation in color on the dragon bead Beatrix.

Noooo! I adore Carnelian. Work it gently (or really overheat it) and it will stay that nice pinkish-creamy color. Work it vigorously but attentively and you get that delicious watermelon-ish color. It spot heats, it reacts with some of the silvers, and it's just plain fun. This must not go away! I have a nice stash of it, but I can't imagine it not being available.

Did anyone ask Mike Frantz to ask them? That's the only opalino that I like. I was looking for some almost 2 years ago and it was super scarce even then. I was able to get a bit from members here, no suppliers had it.

I am usually lurking and admiring all of your beautiful beads, but this is sad news. It is such a beautiful color. One of my favorites. Now I feel like I can't use the rods I have. Must move those over to the "Hoard Pile".

Here is a set I finished the other day. Simple, but I love all of the shades you can get with this glass. Hopefully I upload the picture correctly... first time posting one!

Nice Dayna! I really had no idea it did all that. Dang it. Now I'm kicking myself for not keeping any for myself!

Lovely beads, Dayna., as are all of the carnelian beads in this thread. I never had much luck with it, sadly.

I love Carnelian and was very unhappy to find that this glass has been discontinued. I'll try to post a pic of what I've done with it. Hopefully, Effetre will listen and re-make this color.

Karen Sherwood, Just the thought of Carnelian no longer being available is disturbing.

Dayna, You certainly managed to get just about every hue imaginable out of that glass! Very nice!

Donna, I have always known that Carnelian had a lot of tricks up it's sleeve!

Miss Nina Eagle, Your beads are nothing short of phenomenal! I'm looking forward to seeing what you post, using this glass.

That is one of my favorite glass colors. I don't have images handy, but will try to take some this week. Makes the most glowing planet marbles.


I has a big sad about the end of this color. I hope it makes a comeback or I am going to have to buy a stash where I can find it.

Carnelian is a beautiful glass and I'm very sorry to see it go. I would love to be able to buy more.

I love this glass--so much can be done with it….I hope Effetre decides to do a limited run instead of discontinuing it….

LOL- Steve Carell is awesome!

Thanks for the compliments! I watched an episode of "Hoarders" last night and started to relate with my glass a little bit. That can't be good! I've decided to use it all up and when its gone, its gone. It will be sad though.

I wish I knew how to link threads but it looks like they are making more!!!

Check in the Sale Rack under the "Ask Mikey" thread (Maybe someone could link it for me?). He says they will be making more carnelian next time they do opalinos. They just ran out of the materials to make it. Burn away!!!

WOW, Dayna! That's terrific news. I didn't know that Mike had his own special 'column' here on LE. That'll come in handy! I guess I've been away too long. I just copied the article to save time for those interested in this particular issue.

Mike's reply: "It ain't so. It is true that Effetre has no carnelian (591536) for sale at this time. Inventory ran out and the ingredients to produce this color are hard to find. There is not a huge demand for Opalino, so its production is not as often and as large as other colors. I do have word from the factory that the next time Effetre produces Opalino, they will produce carnelian. As soon as I know when it will be produced, I will post right here on "ASK MIKEY". In about two weeks I will be in Italy and will be looking through inventories to find new tonalities and some old ones that we are all looking for, such as light Ivory to just mention one.

I am going there with samples of all the coral I have and look for new tonalities of coral. Yes, we always need more corals!" < The original poster on the coral was inquiring about "transparent coral". Hope that something comes up on that! >

"Thank You for ordering glass from Frantz Art Glass. Your purchases allow us to look through the archives and find very nice colors or allows us to order new colors and bring them to our customers.

Life is Good
Glass is Great

Thank You
Mike Frantz"

The Carnelian in the rose phase is a lovely glass, and I'm sorry to read that it's not a priority at Effetre.

But what I really pine for is the Carnelian in the rust phase!

Twenty years ago, the rusty color is what came through when one ordered Carnelian. Then, when I ordered Carnelian around 2006, what I got was rose! I didn't even realize there was a rose carnelian. It's pretty and all, but I wanted that lovely opalino rust!

If I find any pics of the rust color I'll post later...
