A transparent yellowish green with grey overtones.

"Pale Green Apple on the left, Mojito on the right. Both are a pretty, pale, yellow-green. In some applications - you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference. In others - you could use it to good effect to create a subtle shaded effect." Read more at DragonJools blog – Dwyn Tomlinson

CiM Tester Feedback

  • In general, testers agree that Mojito is unique to the 104 glass color palette though at first glance it appears to be similar to apple green.
"It is light and delicate, but I do believe there is no other color quite like it." – Serena Thomas
"At first I expected Mojito to be exactly the same as Effetre Pale Apple Green, but on comparison, they are very different. As you can see in the comparison pictures, Apple has more of a yellow-brown tint to it, while Mojito has more of a green-gray tint. Mojito is also darker/more saturated than Apple." – Bethany Lemasters
"I have never seen a colour like this glass before! It is stunning!" – Claire Morris
"Mojito is a nice light transparent yellow-green. I didn’t have another light green transparent to compare it to, so I used it in combination with an olive green in my colors. It is a very nice complimentary color to the olive. It could easily be used with greens or yellows." – Jan Whitesel-Keeton
  • How does Mojito compare to Italian greens?
"Apple green had a lot of bubbles and just didn’t look clean and crisp to me. Mojito came out absolutely perfect – no imperfections at all. Also, the colors are a bit different. Mojito just looks better – a cleaner color, slightly lighter, and just looks a lot more subtle." – Kathy Coon
"Mojito is somewhere in-between Apple and Kelp." – Renee Wiggins
"Mojito and apple green are quite similar, Mojito is stiffer though. I think I will use it for the same purposes as apple green, in spacers and when I want to encase something with very light green." – Maija-Leena Autio
"Mojito has a bit more color than Apple Green. It’s a slight difference but it makes a big difference if used to encase a bead or make stringer to apply as raised dots. I used Mojito as raised dots on Olive based beads and the color is really nice. The glass melted well and may be another possible transparent to use instead of clear when encasing beads." – Gail Witt
"Pale Apple Green is a little lighter than Mojito. I also compared with Yellow Green and Kelp and noticed that Mojito is one of the more 'calmer' of the colors besides Kelp—meaning that it has a much lower tendency to bubble while working it. I really like this pale green and think it makes a wonderful compliment to Olive and Slytherin." – Lori Bergmann
"Working with Mojito is very comparable to working with Italian apple green. It seems to be greyer and not as sprightly of a color. I prefer the Italian color wise." – Chris Haussler
"Mojito seemed a bit paler than apple green, but very pretty." – Donna Dorman
"Apple green and Mojito are a dead on match." – Starleen Colon
"I would prefer Mojito myself over the Apple Green." – Sue Stewart

Diane used Mojito for her flower disc bead tutorial in the October 2011 issue of the Soda Lime Times.

"Mojito is a great layering glass - with any green you want to lighten up and make a bit more subtle. It's the perfect fall green. As a transparent glass, Mojito is smooth and not too stiff. It didn't bubble or scum for me, nor did it react with anything at all." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Cirrus is gorgeous when hand mixed with transparents! You can keep lots of depth by controlling how much of your catalyst [in this case, Cirrus] you use versus how much of the stain [Mojito & Slytherin] you use. It creates incredible variation that is just beautiful!"
Dana George

"CiM Mojito is a transparent yellow-green. It is a lovely and well-behaved colour and I added it to my colour collection pretty quickly. I made some test beads here. This bead is Mojito with encased silver leaf." Read more at Heather's blog.

"I did a base of Mojito, wrapped it in silver foil, added Hades stringer and superheated it all. Then reduced it. It was a total experiment but I like what came out! No other glass was used apart from Mojito and Hades."
Claire Morris
"Mojito is just a little too stiff to be paired with Ivory for flower petals, but I like the colour of the Mojito over Ivory very much." Read more about Mojito testing including Mojito with silver, reduction glass frit, Tuxedo, white, copper green, and opal yellow at Melanie's blog.
Melanie Graham
"When working in the flame, Mojito is a deep yellowish and Green Apple is clear. When cooled, they are very close in color so one would not recognize one over the other. Decided to apply some raku frit to the bead that was half and half. The Green Apple struck beautifully and the Mojito side disappeared."
Leslie Anne Bitgood
"I made a bead in every green shade of CiM I own, and also in similar Effetre shades." See more comparison beads including etched versions at Lush Blogs.
Julie Fountain
"The encasing colour on the left is Effetre Straw - a very pale amber - produces a rich, old gold effect. The encasing on the right is CiM Mojito - a pale green, which has produced a pale slightly greenish gold with some opalizing cloudiness and darker gold." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"To my surprise, it’s sparkly etched?! You can sorta see it in the tab bead..the ‘white dots’ are sparkles, I’ve personally never seen a glass do that, I have to etch more, I’m thinking not a fluke? I hope not, it’s too cool!"
