CiM 506 Moana Ltd Run
CiM Moana - described as a "teal opal" by CiM.
The sample beads are laying on my desk - catching my eye, over and over.
CiM has classified this with the blues - as opposed to the greens - and it is that shade of blue-green that you could argue all day that it belongs with the greens - until you put it next to a grass green - and then you put it with the blues - until you put it next to a royal blue.
Truly - right down the middle - this is a translucent teal - and it positively glows. The photos do not begin to do it justice.
Below, we have (from the Left) - a Marker bead in Effetre Petroleum Green (for reference), Self-coloured Moana, Self-coloured Moana with Ivory Dots (look at that edge pattern! Whoo hoo!) - and Moana over white.
Your monitor will vary - on mine - it appears bluer than it does on my desk - but so does the pet. green - so the relationship between the two stays the same.
This is a really, really lovely colour.
