Default My clear turned gold?!

I grabbed a rod of clear from my pile of clear glass, and was touching up encasing on a bead... and the darned "clear" turned gold/orangey after I applied it! Not a clue what this glass is or where it came from. Any ideas what this glass might be?

Ugh, talk about annoying! Any chance a rod of striking orange made it's way into your clear pile? (Effetre 072 for example)

I have some striking red like that! Can you strike the end of the rod and see what it looks like?

Hah I ended up using a striking red on a bead by accident because it really did look like a clear rod, wonder if you had something similar happen. Do you ever buy a random assortment pack of rods? It may have come with that.

Or something like DH Aion, a few silver glasses are clear in rod form. See if it reduces maybe.

Also, depending on the base glass I have had DH Aether Clear turn yellowish. Not Zephyr. Just Aether.

Here's a quick pic.

I haven't purchased Aether or any striking reds, but I have purchased a lot from the garage sale over the years. Maybe something got mixed in with my clears.

Looks like striking yellow. Possible Aion if you lightly reduce.

Don't ya just hate when that happens

Looks like Yellow Electric http://frantzartglass.com/effetre-ro...rod-591069.asp

On the upside, it's a really nice strong yellow.

Thanks all! It certainly looks like electric yellow.
Now I'll be testing every clear I pick up just to be sure not more got in there.

I electric yellow - such an interesting color. 10 years ago I was exploring the properties of this glass and put up a page about it. Love it for color mixing too.
