 Robert E is described as a " a transparent blue"

Testers reported

"CiM has always created such beautiful blues in their color range and Robert E. is no exception. Blue transparent glass pairs well with silver glass so this bead set shows off the versatility of its combination. The barrel bead was created with limited edition Double Helix 2016 handmade murrini from my stash and dots of Psyche silver glass. I varied the dots and patterns with 99% fine silver wire. Each bead was reduced and encased in Double Helix clear Zephyr to capture the creamy blue mother of pearl reactions. The spacer beads are pure Robert E." See more at Darlene's blog.

"Robert E. is a clean, true transparent blue that has a great sparkly clarity to it. No shocking, bubbling or pitting and also was very nice to work with."

"Robert E. over DH Electra 2.1."

"Robert E. is a transparent medium blue. It’s lighter and brighter than CiM Sapphire. The glass is slightly stiffer to work with than the Effetre transparent blues but it doesn’t haze or fizz like they often do. No shockiness. Robert E. is a very nice colour and a well-behaved glass."

"Robert E. is a transparent medium blue that worked beautifully by itself when making a blown glass vessel and sculptural bird. I think it’s a beautiful color and have further ideas for its use. However, I didn’t like the way it worked on top of a white blown glass vessel because it wouldn’t flow easily."

"Robert E. is a delicious shade of blue that I didn't really know I was missing until I saw it. The closest shade that springs to mind is Effetre Dark Blue 056, however Robert E. is more saturated & vibrant .... and that's just looking at it in the rod. As soon as you melt this into even a small bead [my test beads are only 12mm in diameter], the richness of this glass really shines through, and I'd say it was just a touch lighter than royal blue, it's gorgeous. As I love dark blue etched, I just had to see how Robert E. would look, and like the gentleman he is, he didn't disappoint! This melted like a dream, and I had no issues. If blue floats your boat, you're going to want a bit of Robert E. in your collection!"
