"Anole [left] and Elixir [right] are another matching pair, with Anole being the tranlucent opal and Elixir the misty opal. Colour match is also good." Read more at DragonJools' blog.

"Anole, Elixir, and Elixir Sparkle all started out as the same hue. Anole is a light green opal that stays translucent after annealing, Elixir is a misty opal, and Elixir Sparkle has gold aventurine in it, which changes how it looks depending on how it is used. . . . They all looked slightly different to me, with Anole looking a bit more translucent than Elixir, which appeared a little more transparent." From Marcy's article in Glass Bead Evolution Volume 7- Issue 2, 2019.

"This bead is a base of Anole with Blue Arrow Frog stringer. I love Anole- it's a bright apple green that isn't too yellow. It is evenly translucent which I love. It doesn't pit or spark as some other brands of opals do. I think CiM has mastered opals with this round of new colors, I love how even the translucency stays."
Caroline Davis
"This is a comparison of all the green opals. They are all beautiful, it just depends on if you like your greens with more yellow tones or more of a true green. My favorites are Eclectus Parrot and Anole. I love these opals."
Caroline Davis
"Anole is a glass of light green tone, translucent, does not bubble and does not boil, good friends with Thompson enamel. Beads from this glass have a cold tone."
Alina Razumkova
"Does this look familiar? It’s a bit like CiM Ectoplasm, isn’t it? Like Ectoplasm, Anole is an opal that stays translucent. Colour-wise the two are very similar but Anole is a touch more yellow than Ectoplasm. Working-wise, they were exactly the same: unfussy, smooth, lovely. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"A truly beautiful opal green that beautifies the more you work it. This colour is so beautiful solo it didn't need anything added to it, wanted to show this colour in its most naturaal and beautiful form."
Juliette Mullett
"Anole on first sight seems to fall between Jelly Bean and Chartreuse, however the glass has an iridescent peach glow within similar to a glowing lava lamp. When the light catches the opal glass from behind, the unique color comes to life. Yes, hard to believe unless you see it yourself. All you need is a bead and an indirect light. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
