Hi,
I am about to place a glass order and would like to know the names of these two colors so i can order some more.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The red tone is darker in rod form than the pic and works up to nice earthy tones.

The blue i have had for a long time, hard to see in pic but is translucent when pulled to a stinger.
Thanks
Jo

The pink confuses me, perhaps some coral variation? Have you had it a long time? Very nice.
If the blue is translucent and you have bought CIM before, it might be electric avenue or similar. That is a feature of their opal glasses.

Can we see a photo of the rod ends?

The pink looks like Vetrofond Poppy. The blue looks like Vetrofond Ocean Green.

Sadly both are oop.

Thank you Kristen and Elizabeth 😀
I do not have very much cim so i do not think its that.
Good news on the red/pink rod, i have found a label gm coral 0420 so i can order more😀.
The blue does appear to be vetrofond so i will make myself something special with the last of it.

Corals vary every batch so don't be surprised if what you order is completely different

I think the blue might be CIM Electric Avenue

I bet they are both effetre alabasters.

The blue could be, not the pink/coral, looks a bit like the turquoise alabaster, or could be Electric Ave I agree, that is translucent.

I have been on the hunt for a color, I just saw a post of just some of the 420's we've had, there were a LOT. From yellow to red.
I think the only one we have available to us now is the Persimmon. So many (including myself) complained about all of the corals, now I honestly miss the variations. I would love some of the 'mistakes' like poppy, tequila etc to pop up again.

:lol: I've an entire row of pounds of various 420 dating back more than ten years. Love them when silvered up.
