Default Hard to Find Rods (?)

Hello All,
So yesterday I was looking at a thread (which I can't find now), that was talking about some glass that had become hard to find. I bought an entire studio from someone last year and I think I might have some of this glass. It's not all labeled so I'm hoping for some help with identifying the rods. If I can get some help, then I'll sell the rods on Ebay and let the market decide how much it's worth.

thanks for the help. Here's what I have...


Lausha SP Milky Way LO 605 0406



Rose EFF-068



Oro Gold Pink



Terra skinny rods
(I'm not sure about these. They were in a Zip Lock bag with no label. If anyone has a suggestion about a test I can do, that would be great).



Shampoo Glass
All I know about this is that the seller called it "Shampoo Glass". I have no idea what it is or how it's used.


I also have "Sedona Premium Pastel #591257".


thanks all for your help.

Terra
If they are Terra, about $20-25/quarter lb ETA: I've recently read Terra goes for more than this.

I'm not familiar with how Shampoo glass looks. It kind of looks like veiled cane to me.

That terra looks a bit too thin, and a bit too iniform in color to be terra? They may be raku stringers.

thank you ladies.
This helps a lot. I think you're right about the raku stringers. They look a lot like the raku frit I have when I make beads from them.

Shampoo Glass has a pearly appearance, hence the name "Shampoo". It's also known as Pearly Ornela. I don't think what you have is Shampoo Glass. Of course, I can't tell from the pic but it doesn't look like any that I've seen or owned.

Yeah, it looks like one of the 96 veiled canes.
