Lunar Ltd Run (511578)<br />A blue opal.

A blue opal.




"This blue opal was an attempt at recreating CiM Tardis and think they’ve done a great job. I’d say Lunar is maybe just a touch darker. The photo here shows Lunar with Effetre Periwinkle Blue 220. Lunar is not at all shocky. I say this a lot so I must point out here that I do take a while warming my glass rods before using them. You know, just wafting it in and out of the top part of the flame before getting it fully hot." Read more at Laura's blog. – Laura Sparling

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Lunar was engineered in response to requests to re-create Tardis (which was a happy accident). Testers report this color is unique to the 104 color palette.

Claudia Eidenbenz’s "Vetrothek" (glass library) is a great resource for color comparisons.

"Lunar was an attempt to re-make Tardis and it's almost spot on. It's maybe a shade darker than Tardis, and Tardis might be ever so slightly greener, but they are very very similar. Easy to work and rather lovely to look at. The bubbles you can see in my photo are from using the glass at the cut end of the rod. I haven't noticed bubbles in beads made with glass further down the rod. I'm finding it really hard to photograph Lunar well. I keep getting reflections or marks and even coming back to it over several days hasn't helped."

"Do you believe in love at first melt? Because I love this glass, this colour. This translucent, blue as a sapphire, blue is stunning, and seems to me, to be unlike anything else in the glass colour palette. Correct me if I'm wrong." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Lunar is a gorgeous, slightly-grayed, darkened, opal blue that reminds me of the phrase 'goes well with denim'."

"Lunar is a remake of Tardis. This is another great remake and really should be called Tardis."

"For those of you who loved Tardis, you're gonna want to get your hands on Lunar! This was an attempt to remake Tardis [which was a happy accident] and as you can see from the picture they were pretty successful [in real life there is a smidgen difference], but I'm sure those who love Tardis will forgive that! It works beautifully in the flame and is a gorgeous, gorgeous blue!"
