Effetre/Moretti - Light Turquoise Opaque.
This creamy, opaque color looks like the gemstone turquoise. When decorated with light or dark Ivory designs, this color will produce a black line between the two colors which is due to a chemical reaction.
Effetre/Moretti Glass is a very popular glass rod which is used in flame working mainly for soft glass bead making. Melt these "soft" glass rods with a torch to make beads, sculptures, buttons, marbles or fuse them together with the compatible, flat clear sheets. All you need to begin flame working with this glass is a bench burner, safety glasses, optional tools and an annealing kiln.

I'm a lazy bead-maker, and I love the reaction the copper colors (like Light Turquoise) have with sulfur colors (like Dark Ivory) -- it's like getting a third bonus color! The weird grey reduction haze doesn't appear as often as with Dark Turquoise, and cleans up easily with a quick soak in toilet bowl cleaner when it does happen.
