Default DH Oxalis Vs. Thallo Vs. Gaia ?

What are the differences? I've used Thallo, and Gaia first batch but it's been so long for me to remember if there was a difference. I was about to order Gaia, but I may want Oxalis? haha

Oh I was hoping there were some answers. I have Thallo and was looking at Gaia. Not sure which one is easier to use but I don't get a lot with my Thallo. I hope someone has some advice for you.

I know I have Gaia and Thallo, one is more emerald if I remember correctly, the other a little more yellow in the green. If nobody is in a hurry, I can try to remember to make a test bead. I'm not sure if I have Oxalis or not.

Personally, I've had better luck encasing Thallo than Gaia. Gaia is just beautiful without encasement and reduced to a blue-green.

All I know is Gaia is an older glass. Ask Jed at Double Helix?

Oxalis is a soft minty green transparent silver glass. Easy to reduce, it's lovely over teals etc. Thallo is a darker green than Gaia, and easier to reduce. Gaia is very pretty but I have fights with it! It's not my favourite silver glass but others love it. Get a rod or two if each and gave a pkay!
