A whitish opal with a hint of yellow that stays translucent after annealing- same hue as Lemonade.




"Egg White is a lemon cream opal. The glass is very similar in color to CiM Lemonade, however not as transparent. During the heating process, the glass appears to be striking yellow, however do not let the butterscotch color fool you. Once annealed, the lovely color of Egg White reappears. On a unique note, when a transparent encasement or lens is layered on Egg White, the glass appears to sparkle from within. I believe it to be the magnification of minute bubbles in Egg White. Still, this is an unexpected, eye catching effect. No shocking or hazing occurred during testing." – Heather Sellers

Egg White (left) & Lemonade (right)- The translucency of each is not created by striking in the flame or by tweaking the flame chemistry, this is exactly how each glass works up in a neutral flame.

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Egg White was engineered in response to color requests for a soft yellow.
I adore this colour, and I do think that CiM creates some fabulous neutral colours that make great bases. Even better, this opal is easy to encase and suits a whole range of colours. – Trudi Doherty

"On the left, Lemonade, and on the right, Egg White. The Lemonade is clearer, the Egg White, more translucent. . . .  I am really liking this trend with the matching colours in different translucencies." Read more at DragonJools' blog.

"Egg White is one of the new translucent opals. I love it!! It was not shocky for me and it fumed to a deeper yellow with the Helios stringer. This bead is a base of Egg White with DH Helios stringer."

"Egg White is a white opal glass that has been designed to stay translucent. This is the second glass of this new type that I have looked at so far [see my post on Elixir] and it too seems to have a kind of inner glow to it. Egg White is a fairly stiff glass that is not reactive with either turquoise [Smurfy dots] or handmade Effetre silvered ivory stringer." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Oooh, hello, this is a nice one. Egg White is a translucent opal and it’s a thing of beauty. It’s got a sort of softest-hint-of-yellow creaminess to it that reminds me of ivory or antique lace. Egg White was soft and smooth to work with and I had no shockiness problems with it. I work very cool and I found that if I heated the glass too much for too long it scummed a bit so I’m guessing that this one likes to be handled with care." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"A beautiful and mystical opal white that is semi-translucent. Such a beautiful colour solo they have a pearly white glow about them."

"This is another one of the new opals that keeps it's alluring translucency after annealing. This melts beautifully without needing any pre-heating. You can see from the test beads how well this takes frit, and see how it has changed with the reactive jellyfish blend. The Dark Lavender is softened beautifully, and even on it's own Egg White is understated and stunning."
