Budgerigar is described as "a lime green misty opal"

"Budgerigar is one of the misty opals, it's a translucent kelly green that stays more translucent. My working style results in a lot of repeated heating and cooling which Budgerigar tolerated well. I love how consistent the milkiness is. I tend to spot heat my beads quite a bit doing stringer work - some opals seem to develop spots that are more or less translucent but none of the new opals and misty opals did this and I am so happy about that!"

"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."

"Budgerigar is a misty opal green. It’s like a slightly greener, more transparent version of Ectoplasm. Budgerigar melted without any issues. A lovely glass to work with. The photograph was taken indoors in natural daylight." Read more at Laura's tumblr.

"Budgerigar is a slightly greener version of Elixir. The slightly transparent glass falls between Chartreuse and Jelly Bean in the CiM family. No shocking or bubbling occurred during testing. Here, Budgerigar is used as a lens for the layered accent dots on a base of Weeping Willow."
Heather Sellers

"Budgerigar is a new misty opal green, close to Mantis but has noticeably more yellow tones, and is more translucent than Jelly Bean. It melts smoothly in the flame with no issues. As these new opals have been developed to stay translucent, they are ideal for layering which can open up to a whole range of colour possibilities! I have used it to encase over Effetre Daffodil and CiM Foam, and it gives a gratifying depth to a bead. On the heart bead I used it as a base for a reactive lustre glass and it really makes it sing! A truly beautiful shade."

"A beautiful misty opal green that is heading more of a kiwi opal green. Easy to work, fuss free. Seen here with Double Helix Triton outer decoration. Absolutely beautiful."
