"This bead mini set used a base of CiM's Elixir with stormed Double Helix Melia over dots of CiM Peppermint Cream. Each storm dot was encased with portal dots of DH Zephyr. Dots of reduced Melia completed the focal beads. The spacers are CiM's Elixir." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Anole, Elixir, and Elixir Sparkle all started out as the same hue. Anole is a light green opal that stays translucent after annealing, Elixir is a misty opal, and Elixir Sparkle has gold aventurine in it, which changes how it looks depending on how it is used. . . . They all looked slightly different to me, with Anole looking a bit more translucent than Elixir, which appeared a little more transparent." From Marcy's article in Glass Bead Evolution Volume 7- Issue 2, 2019.

"Elixir with Fremen stringer. Elixir is a misty opal and pretty translucent- you can see the shadow of the stringer that is on the opposite side of the bead- I think that is such a cool effect. It is a bright yellowish apple green. I had no problems with shocking or bubbling."
Caroline Davis
"Elixir is very similar in behavior to the famous Crocus and Cirrus. After reheating a beautiful nebula appears in their translucency, very similar to moonstone or opal. A glass of light green tone, almost transparent in rod form and translucent in beads. Uniform color, does not bubble and does not boil, good friends with Thompson enamel. And of course perfect for gooseberry!"

"Elixir is a new misty opal green, very translucent and extremely pretty. A bright shade of green which will be perfect for zingy summer creations. It is quite similar to Budgerigar, but is lighter and more translucent."

"What a fantastic, totally fluorescent color! It has a bit of an opalescence to it and is not completely transparent, which makes it such an interesting color. You get depth of shadow and transparency with this super saturated yellow-green. It's similar in tone compared to 511450 Chartreuse, but has the transparency of 511461 Jelly Bean. No problems at all melting this one."
Renee Wiggins
"The lighter shade is called Elixir, a soft delicate pastel semi transparent green. It seems to have an inner glow." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Elixir is a misty opal in an acidic yellow-green. The glass melted easily with no shocking or bubbling and its opal mistiness was apparent whilst working the glass and remained after annealing. Elixir is a lovely glass that does exactly what you’d expect it to. Bob uncle Fanny aunt. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"A lovely fresh opal green that is subtle in colour and seems to gently glow from the inside. Beautiful to work, fuss free."
Juliette Mullett
"Akin to Chartreuse, however this new color is less intense. The opal glass has a subtle glow similar to milk glass. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
