Chartreuse Ltd Run (511450)<br />An opal lime green.

An opal lime green.




I found Chartreuse to be a bit bubbly but even with the bubble in the rod it was not shocky at all, I found it easy to work with. Vetrofond Parrot Green on the bottom and Chartreuse on the top. – Nicole Valentine

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Chartreuse & Inchworm were engineered in response to requests for (the now unavailable) Vetrofond Key Lime and Parrot Green. So far testers' feedback indicates that we were successful in re-creating Parrot Green.
I think hue wise Chartreuse is a close match to Parrot Green, but density wise it’s quite transparent. – Nicole Valentine

"Chartreuse is an interesting color that I have experimented with some silver glass to see if it mixes well without reaction. These single beads were experiments with Double Helix silver glass murrinis that were melted in and swirled. No adverse reaction between the glass and Chartreuse base glass."

"I found Chartreuse to be a bit bubbly but even with the bubble in the rod it was not shocky at all, I found it easy to work with. The left hand beads are encased in Moretti Super Clear, Vetrofond Parrot Green on the bottom and Chartreuse on the top. The beads to the right of those have a dot pattern in clear, which did not show at all on Chartreuse. You can see it faintly on Parrot Green. To the right of those, the beads have been rolled once in Silver Lake frit [I find it to be one of the most reactive frits, therefore a good one to use in colour sampling]. The far right hand beads have fine silver wire wrapped around them."

"Almost neon in the rod, this is a unique opalescent lime green. It behaved very well, Raku frit swirled in then encased gave some beautiful soft pinks and yellows. A superb base for stormed Ekho. The layering with Yellow Brick Road in the bird bead gives a good reaction; Grape Ape splits nicely in the dot bead."

"An eye-popping translucent spring fresh shoots kind of green." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"Chartreuse is a translucent opal colour. I braced myself when I put it in the flame- but it melted like a dream- just like butter. And while I didn't put it in a hot flame, I didn't pre-warm it as I do with most other opals. The larger bead is just Chartreuse with acid yellow and deep black. The round bead is over Effetre opal white and gives it a slightly softer edge."

"First up is a fabulously bright opal lemon green called Chartreuse. . . . Chartreuse seems to have a kind of inner glow of its own. The leaves here show the subtle misty opal effect you get when this glass is pressed thin."  Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Chartreuse is a brilliant sunny green. The opalino glass is an extremely unique addition to the entire 104 COE family. The crisp, happy color wonderfully bridges the color gap between Poison Apple and Pollen."
