Default copper green reactions

I am currently trying to find what glass I used to make a bead with copper green. I thought it was dk. ivory , but when I try to match the bead already made, I cannot get it as dark as the shading on the original bead. It is not stone ground. Any ideas? It may just be the batch of dk. ivory I had. Regardless, I have to make a matching bead. Help! The glass has to react with it.

Thanks, Jill

Any chance of a picture? That would really help a lot in determining the glass.
I can make guesses, though. Opal yellow, silver pink, ASK Caramel Apple, Reichenbach 104 Caramel. What brand of glass might it be?

Yes to the picture. But some people were just discussing the new batches of dark ivory not acting the same, so it could be that.

I can try to post a pic. I tried opal yellow. Caramel apple sounds like a try. I keep no notes. Pretty sure it was Moretti, but I buy a lot of Cim. I will be back. Thx. Jill

How long ago did you make the bead? I ask because some colors might not have been available yet, if it was a made a while ago.
