A dense transparent green with aventurine.




"Eden is a very dense, dark transparent bottle green. The glass contains tiny particles of aventurine which give it a bit of sparkle. In rod form the glass looks black and if you were to make a solid bead with it the resulting bead would also appear black. These nuggety beads were made by encasing a clear glass core with a thin layer of Eden and when you hold the beads up to the light you can see their deep green tone and their subtle glimmer. Eden is very glossy and smooth and it melted with no issues. The glass is extremely difficult to photograph, though, and I’ve been waiting for some sunshine so I could actually capture the green."

Messy Tester's Feedback

  • Eden is a transparent green with aventurine. Testers had mixed feedback about the aventurine sparkle.
Eden is a gorgeous dark green transparent. It has aventurine in it, and I can see on the CiM pages that other people have had some luck keeping the sparkle and even magnifying it under clear, but I haven't experienced that. Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham
"This deep, mysterious color hides an array of depth. At first, I believed this color to be black, but on further inspection tones of greens and galaxy blue can be seen. The photographs do not do this glass justice... the golden glint of sparkle is much more apparent in person, especially when magnified by a clear encasement. The glass will react with aventurine frit. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing." – Heather Sellers
  • Eden is extremely dense and an excellent substitute for our sold-out color Slytherin.
Eden is a really pretty green and will make a fabulous encasement layer for my vine canes . . . . From left to right, on top of Peppermint Cream, you see Slytherin Unique #2, Slytherin Unique #1, Algae, and Eden. Eden is a rich, evergreen green that is less yellow than the Slytherins and Algaes of the world. Read more at Melanie's blog. – Melanie Graham

"Reducing silver glass on top of Eden is nice - I got pretty colours from my frit. The striking silver glass didn't do anything magical." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"Here Eden is paired with 3 different transparent encasements. The aqua and clear tests also include a dash of aventurine frit. There is a nice reaction between the glass and frit. The lavender bead is strictly Eden and the encasement. The sparkle is quite apparent in person."
