Default Gold Beads

What is the gold glass used in blown beads? Many beads have a gold base with frit or enamel on them. Others have gold stripes on dark base. What glass, frits or enamels are used on these beads. They are beautiful.

Hi Sandybead,
it could be anything from fuming, to metallic reduction of silver glasses, from Iris orange to Double helix Helios or Aurae. Some pics would help to know exactly, and if you are talking about boro or soft glass. but if you look up fuming or the colors I mentioned, you will find some examples
