CiM Tester Feedback

  • Persian Green is a milky opal that stays translucent after annealing; its misty opal counterpart is Nymph. Persian Green is similar to our popular color Kryptonite but a bit more blueish.

"064 black base, Persian Green- like butter, viscous, resistant to reducing. Beautiful color."

"Persian Green decorated with Val Cox Fleeting Beauty glass frit. This glass melted smoothly with no issues. Spacers are solid Persian Green which maintained its translucency in each bead." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Persian Green is a lovely, delicate, slightly-blued, translucent light green."
Gloria Sevey
"In testing, I found no pitting or boiling and hardly any issues with shockiness. I experienced the teeniest amount of the very tip of Peacock Feather popping off but warming it in the back of the flame seemed to do the trick and subsequent meltings seemed to be fine. Once again my pleasant surprise that the silver wire I use .999 does not seem to effect these glasses and gives that lovely contrast and elegance with no reactions. These glasses are also part of the pairing system of Misty Opals and what I call Milky Opals. They have the same base batch but then one is tweaked to either remain more translucent while the other keeps more opacity. Overall these colors all offer us a beautiful gradient color palette in which to create with! Whoever said you can have too much of one color was clearly not an artist!"

"Persian Green is another gorgeous sea green translucent. A bit less transparent than Nymph but very similar in color. Love! Sculpts like a dream. Not too stiff, either."
Lori Peterson
"They are all such beautiful colours. I have to say I really love the misty opals the best. They have a lovely glimmer inside. So my preference would be Sea Glass, Nymph and Ice Mint but how is one to decide? They are all so beautiful!"

"Two gorgeous greens from CiM in a fresh minty shade. Persian Green is a translucent opal, and Nymph is its misty opal counterpart. I did find that Nymph was more saturated in colour than most of their misty opals, and on a quick glance these do look very similar. However,  it doesn't show so well in the photograph but Nymph is definitely more translucent. If you loved colours like Sea Foam, Kryptonite and Spearmint then you are going to love these!!"

"Similar to Lady of the Lake and Sea Glass; this misty opal sea green is very pretty and gives off a delicate inner glow. Beautiful hue."
Juliette Mullett
"Persian Green is a spearminty bluey-green which is like a paler Kryptonite. It’s a trouble-free translucent glass that melts smoothly. It’s more green in some lights and more blue in others. That’s not to say it magically shifts colour; like many glasses it looks different depending on what kind of light it’s in. The glass works nicely with stringer to give the batik effect that I like so much. The scrolls on this one are Effetre Periwinkle 220." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Be still my beating heart! In this new batch of colours, there are some beautiful fresh minty greens. They kinda go in pairs as CiM has made some misty opals and coordinating opals that stay translucent. I've pictured them all together so that you can easily compare them!"
