1/4 Kilo of Wheatgrass (Ltd Run) CiM Glass Rods, 11-12 rods.

Ltd Run colours are manufactured in extremely small quantities and might not be repeated again so the advice is always to buy as much as you can if you like it.

Wheatgrass is described as "a misty opal green - the same hue as poison apple"

"Poison Apple, Wheatgrass, Eclectus Parrot, Mantis, Ectoplasm, and Budgerigar all melted smoothly with no shockiness or bubbles. They bring some beautiful new colors to the 104 palette. I am loving the new translucents and misty opals. These are great and don’t bubble and boil like some of the alabasters and opalinos."

"Wheatgrass is a misty opal version of CiM Poison Apple. Wheatgrass is so very green and as I was cleaning these beads I was reminded of Lord Percy Percy when he creates 'a nugget of purest green' in Blackadder II. The glass is only a tiny bit misty and you can see this best in the heart bead, probably because it is larger and was worked for longer in the flame, along with some cooling and reheating. The spacers are pretty much transparent. Wheatgrass melted well, although the rod I had was a tad bubblesome but not so much that it is distractingly bubbly. No shocking and no scumming."

"Wheatgrass is a bright shamrock green opal. The glass is very similar to Poison Apple, but much more saturated in color. The glass nicely pressed and shaped into sculptural leaves. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
Heather Sellers

"Exciting times as CiM has been developing old and new opal colours to help them stay translucent. And as a side project, misty opals to behave like the moonstone opals where you can create subtle differences by flame striking. Wheatgrass is a misty opal version of a re-worked Poison Apple. The rod at first glance looks transparent, but look closer and it doesn't quite have the clarity of regular transparents. This melted with no issues at all and is a dream to work with. I made some plain 12 mm spacers and these came out pretty similar to the rod [a little darker but they are thicker than the rod]."
