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

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.

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