A lime green opal that stays translucent after annealing.




"Ectoplasm is described as ‘an opal that stays translucent’ and yep, it does just that. It’s a sour yellowy green that looks like it might taste of Haribo Tangfastics. [Do not eat beads!] The glass melted like butter - so smooth and flowy but not overly so. It didn’t bubble and I had no shocking or rod-poppery. Ectoplasm is a lovely springtime green and I think it would look fab with pinks and lavenders. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr. – Laura Sparling

"This is an amazing candy color that reminds me of bright green jade. It is about the same opalescence as 511450 Chartreuse, but in a bluer 'apple green' tone. Melts like a dream with no boiling at all."

"Another beautiful opal green that is like an opal apple green, a lovely subtle hue that is fuss free and beautiful to work with."

"Ectoplasm is true to the colorful sci-fi name, the color looks like something slimy born in a mad scientist’s lab. Similar to Budgerigar, this glass will remain opal if worked with a tool and repeatedly heated/cooled. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
