Peridot Ltd Run (511453)<br />A transparent gemstone green.

A transparent gemstone green.

"Peridot is a pale transparent yellowish green. It does bubble quite easily, but they mostly ended up like tiny champagne bubbles here rather than scum, so don’t look too ugly." Read more at Heather's blog. – Heather Kelly

CiM Tester Feedback

  • Peridot is unique and fills a gap in the 104 lampworking palette.
Peridot feels quite similar to some of the pale greens we have had before. – Kaz Baildon
Peridot is definitely unique. – Kandice Seeber
"Peridot is a pale spring green colour, and is like a paler version of CiM Mojito, and somewhat less yellow. It's a bit less reactive than Mojito, and is a pretty, unique addition to the 104 colour palette." Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Peridot is a gorgeous transparent yellow-green. It’s clear as anything and I had no bubbling or scumming issues with it, but do bear in mind that I work everything slowly and quite cool. It’s a crisp, fresh green that doesn’t really have a glassy counterpart. It’s a bit like CiM Mojito but paler and more yellow. If you can remember the original Effetre transparent Pale Emerald green from yonks back [not the awful too-green one they do now], it’s like that, but with a touch of yellow to it. Just lovely."

"Like other colours in this hue group, Peridot is quite reactive with silver. You can see in the leftmost bead that silver turned this colour an interesting colour of brown when used on the surface. When the silver was reduced and encased, that brownness is not in evidence and the silver seems to have dispersed itself uniformly all over the surface, forming a snowy blanket under the clear encasement layer. Peridot turns silver a pretty golden colour when you use it to encase silver foil." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"In the rod it looks very pale which can be quite deceptive. As with many pales, the depth of colour can look very different when you make it even into small beads. You can see from the heart that it's a very yellow shade of green . . . with earthy hues. Comparing rods, the closest I found were CiM Flax and Effetre Uranium. This melted in the flame with no issues."

"Peridot is a yellow green almost pale in hue. I wanted to test it against silver glass, so I sprinkled one of my 'go-to' fine frit, Double Helix Ekho. With the frit coating, you don't see the micro-bubbles that occur when you work the glass in a warmer flame, so if you want crystal clear beads, definitely work in a cooler flame."

"Peridot is a very pale, yellowy green. It is a pretty and delicate colour - and when heating it, it almost looks like it is striking, as the heated end changes colour, but as you can see - it goes back to the same colour when cool. I found I got a lot of fine bubbles in it - which you can also see." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Peridot is a stunningly beautiful colour much like the gemstone that inspired it's name. However, don't let the gentle colour fool you into thinking that it is easy and gentle to work with. It is actually a temperamental beast that will only like being worked very slowly and VERY cool. You need to work higher up in the flame or else it bubbles and scums. You need to remember this the whole time when working as it isn't forgiving if you accidentally work fast and will put scum into your work. In essence, Peridot is a Diva. Treat her slowly and gently and her colours will sing for you and will remain clear. Treat her badly, quick and hot, and she will become temperamental and try to spoil your hard work."
