"Here are Peacock Feather, a translucent opal blue [top set with Montezuma dots] and Surf's Up which is a misty opal [bottom set with turquoise dots]. Both sets of dots have had the same interesting reactions, either pooling or darker outlines over these blue opal glass colours." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog. – Jolene Wolfe

"Peacock Feather surprised me a little by being a little bit more subdued, grayish, smokey, than I anticipated. There's a lot of these lovely blue greens in the latest batch of new CiM colours. I'm really enjoying the subtle variations in colours, and I think there's a lot of potential for doing shaded effects." Read more at DragonJools blog.

"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!"

"Another experiment with copper foil in these dragonfly beads. Base glass is Peacock Feather, an opal blue that stays transculent. Wispy streams of Double Helix OX 459 test glass were reduced and encased to complete these bicone barrel beads. Spacers are solid Peacock Feather." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Peacock Feather is a very pretty grayed, teal blue opal that torches beautifully."
Gloria Sevey
"A beautiful opal tea blue that has a misty/foggy inner glow. Easily lends itself to the Peacock hues and would look just as stunning in beach themed designs too."

"Peacock Feather is a lovely opal colour. It is so smooth and no shocking at all. An ever so slight green tinted teal. The closest colour to it was the old Atlantis."

"Peacock Feather is an opal teal green-blue and I love it. It’s not like any other colour I’ve used. No shocking, no bubbles, very well-behaved. You know how in the last post I said that a lot of the CiM opals absolutely hate stringer? Well, the ones that only have a mild dislike of it can be handy because you can use this to your advantage to create stringer designs that have a sort of batik feel to them. The stringer loses its defined edges slightly and it separates to give a darker line through the centre of it. The photo shown here is Peacock Feather over Lady of the Lake, with scrolls in Effetre Light Turquoise 232." Read more at Laura's blog.
