Default Name that color! Round 2

I'm back again with another challenge!
But this time, its a little different.

My Favorite color is Effetre/Moretti Aquarium. I have only EVER been able to find it on the Frantz website. It first appeared in August 2013, then disappeared. Now its come back to just their site.

I'm wondering if it MAYBE someone has seen this color on another site, under a different name?

I'm remaining hopeful that is wasn't just a random odd lot since it really doesn't look like anything else in the Effetre palette. It looks like Light Teal, but has that great wisp of green in it.

What do you think?

Do you have a photo of the rod? And a number?

I ran out a long time ago, so I'll have to wait for my order to arrive. The rod looks pretty much like the sample though. It's a teal rod where if you hold it to the light, you see the strands of green "seaweed".

It is:
Model: 591701
Manufactured by: Effetre Glass

But, I imagine that model number is just for Frantz, not Effetre.

It's possible there may be different names ... It's happened before ... But the number should not change.

Sometimes just Frantz gets unique colors like this. I don't think it is part of Effertres regular line. Maybe ask Mike Frantz, he will tell you.
