Eclectus Parrot is described as "a lime green opal that stays translucent after annealing"

"This is a comparison of all the green opals. They are all beautiful, it just depends on if you like your greens with more yellow tones or more of a true green. My favorites are Eclectus Parrot and Anole. I love these opals."
Caroline Davis

"This heart bead is made with an Eclectus Parrot base and Eden stringer. Eclectus Parrot behaved very well- no shocking or bubbling. It handled being heated and cooled frequently, it remained evenly translucent despite the long working times."
Caroline Davis

"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."
Paula Schertz

"A new green opal that stays translucent . . . Yay! In the rod its a beautiful translucent green, as you make beads the colour does build up. The plain spacers are 12mm and still look just a touch 'transparent', the decorated beads are 14mm, and while they have kept their stunning translucency, you can no longer see the mandrel inside. The colour is crisp and fresh with a good balance of blue and yellow tones and it's a fuss free colour to work with!"
Trudi Doherty

"Eclectus Parrot is a bright green opal that stays translucent. It’s a right zingy green and it reminds me of lime jelly. Like all of the other new opal and misty opal greens, it was totally unfussy to use and it has the most tremendous shine. This sounds daft because all glass is shiny, right? Yes, it is, but I reckon some glasses are shinier than others. I don’t know why. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Eclectus Parrot is a bright candy opal green. More opal than Mantis, yet lighter in color than Inchworm. The unique new color is a lovely addition the 104 family. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing."
