A milky opal blue.

"Identical to beautiful icy blue Aquamarine Ice Misty but a soft opaque. So easy to melt and works quick or slow in a cooler flame. So easy on the eyes. A must with white." – Jean Daniels

"Aquamarine Ice Misty and Milky. The top fishy is the Misty. In the photos I look at it and think dark aqua or aqua or turquoise, but in real life I think they look not quite so aqua, more of a cyan."

"Aquamarine Ice is a beautiful colour. The original Poseidon was unreliable and very hard to keep consistent. This new Milky and Misty version are much more reliable. Melts well and is a strong colour."

"Aquamarine Ice is a pale true blue. This one comes in both a milky and a misty version and they are both gorgeous. My working notes: Misty- lovely ethereal warm blue, smooth, no pitting or scum, not shocky.  Milky- really nice to work with, minimally shocky, great to sculpt.”
Lori Peterson
"Aquamarine Ice is a rework of CiM Poseidon into misty and milky versions of this fabulous glowing blue. I think they both perfectly colour match to Poseidon which is one of my all time fav CiM glasses. No problems melting even without pre-warming. No bubbling or shocking. I thought the milky was a little stiffer than the misty to reshape but only very slightly and of course a little milkier and not quite as transparent as misty. These are beautiful dreamy translucent versions and quite gorgeous. I made another bead with Aquamarine Ice Misty and added Double Helix Aurae dots [not pictured] to check for reactions. The silver turned Aquamarine Ice a mottled sea green blue. Yuck but one to remember if using silver glass to thin encase first."

“I made a sculptural bird bead with Aquamarine Ice Milky. Nice pale aqua color and it was easy to work with. I began with a clear ‘core’ body and then encased in Aquamarine Ice Milky. This gives an opportunity to see encasement with the color. The head, wings and tail were added straight from the rod. I used Reichenbach Deep Black for the base of the beak followed by Effetre Pastel Yellow. The eyes were also Reichenbach Deep Black.”
Kim Fields
"Here’s a fun little 'test glass' pendant! I grabbed three random new CiM green/blues from my test batch and made a bead! These are all 'milky' versions of Aquamarine Ice, Atoll and Fjord. I pre-warmed all the rods to minimize any possible shocking and they were problem free. I love the milky versions of CiM- they have a soft, serene quality in my opinion."
Angela Dose
"I hardly ever encase the CiM opals and I don’t know why. I think it must stem from my beginner beadmaking days and it was an absolute no-no to consider encasing any of the Italian opalino and alabastro glass because it would crack, so I think I got it into my head that it would be the same with the CiM opals. However, on the few occasions that I have encased the CiM opals I’ve not had any troubles. This round  of testing . . . I’ve added a thin layer of clear as a barrier so that any decoration stays neat and clean because the opals have a tendency to make stringer and spots feathery and wibbly. That’s fine because you can use it to your advantage, like I do for my ‘batik’ style beads, but more often than not I like my dots and lines to be as crisp as a Krisproll." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Just like its 'misty' counterpart, Aquamarine Ice Milky is a really nice color and melts smoothly. Unfortunately, I did have a crack develop in this piece . . . so something about this glass didn't like encasing or being encased by silvered ivory."
