CiM 532 Birthstone
That's the Effetre on the top, and the Birthstone on the bottom.
Basically - they look very similar, but the Birthstone is just slightly smokier in hue. Read on to see what I mean.
Some people report a problem with transparent aquas, in general, "frying" when they work them, and so I should think their question is: "Does this glass fry?"
And I can't say that I saw that, but I don't generally have a problem with that anyway - so I think that must be a personal working style.
Are the streaks of soot a characteristic of this glass? I can't say for sure - I'd have to try more of it to find out.
Would I choose to use it over Eff Lt Aqua? I might, although for most people, I think that the subtle colour difference probably won't be enough to matter to them.
