Default Please help ID this colors

I was able to purchase some 104 from a local stained glass shop who no longer sells softglass for lampworking. There are only labels on a few of the rods, however these two don't have labels. Ugh.. So I'm reaching out to the glass color gurus on this forum. Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance.


Kind of a butter color, lighter core. some rods are a tiny bit different in shade



The glass on the right? kind of a cream color or beige. (placed against a white for comparison).

It might be translucent ivory. I think that was a Vetro odd.

Try heating the beige/creamy one. If it turns pink it probably carnelian.

Maybe alabaster or opalino. If they pop and boil and don't really change color, probably alabasters. That yellow is pretty.

I was thinking maybe opalino glass? But there are so many colors I'm probably wrong.

Looks like opalino or alabaster. If you can work them cool, they are beautiful.

I think both are opalino. The yellow is obviously yellow, lovely color. The other is copper (carnelian) opalino. It will strike to the prettiest peach, like this kitty.

From the end they look pretty yellow, so my guess is yellow opalino. The second bundle does look an awful lot like that odd Vetro Ivory, but mine has more of a translucent ivory color in the center.

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts on these two colors. I made test beads last night and here is what I found. The yellowish glass was a tad smutty and is best when worked cool. Each stayed true to color as you can see in the picture. So I'm guessing they are Alabaster and the one on the right is Ivory (even though it looks yellow) and the one of the left is Yellow (even though it looks ivory..haha). I checked Frantz, ABR, Glass Creative, Glass Sorbet websites. Sigh this can be so confusing. thanks again

Opalino not alabaster (unless they boil like crazy). The light one might be white opalino or even another shade of yellow opalino - some of it was very pale.

Looks like opalinos to me. I looooove the yellow and use it often. I think the lighter one on the left is probably ivory opalino.
