A milky opal mint green that stays translucent after annealing- same hue as Ice Mint.




"These beads are a combination of Toothpaste and Double Helix silver glasses. The watery blue is DH Kronos mixed with clear glass. Silver glitter adorns the Toothpaste ends to note beautiful compatibility between CiM and the silver glass. Loving these colors together for summer." See more at Darlene's blog. – Darlene Collette

"Toothpaste is a lovely, opal, translucent green that is, yep, similar to an opal version of Listerine. Definitely refreshing!"

"They are all such beautiful colours. I have to say I really love the misty opals the best. They have a lovely glimmer inside. So my preference would be Sea Glass, Nymph and Ice Mint but how is one to decide? They are all so beautiful!"

"Ice Mint is a misty opal [top pair of hearts] and Toothpaste is an translucent opal [bottom pair of hearts]. The Ice Mint beads have dark turquoise dots, interestingly the dots have pooled to create darker looking centers adding a bit of extra interest. The Toothpaste hearts have been decorated with Montezuma dots which appear to have a slightly darker rim as a reaction to the opal glass base." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Another of CiM’s spearminty blue-green translucent opals. It’s very similar to Persian Green in both the way it looks and how it behaves. Love the glowy thing it gets when the sun shines through it. Gorgeous glass. The scrolls on these are Effetre Periwinkle 220. The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's blog.

"Green is my favourite colour, and minty greens are on the top of my favourite greens so imagine my joy when I saw these in the tester pack! Toothpaste is a gorgeous mint green that keeps its translucent properties even after being annealed! Ice Mint is the misty opal equivalent and is such a gorgeous glass, more translucent than Toothpaste. Both melted well, with no issues."

"Be still my beating heart! In this new batch of colours, there are some beautiful fresh minty greens. They kinda go in pairs as CiM has made some misty opals and coordinating opals that stay translucent. I've pictured them all together so that you can easily compare them!"
