CiM 816 Nimbus

 CiM Nimbus - a very dark opaque blue grey. The rods are very dark - not quite dark enough to be mistaken for black, but certainly, they are quite dark.

 The beads themselves are somewhat more obviously grey, and have a bluish note to them.

 Dot of Nimbus on white bleed to a soft, fuzzy perimeter.

And just to test the opacity - this is Nimbus in a very thin layer over clear. It continues to hold up.

Interestingly - one of the beads cracked (my fault, not the glass) after it went into the kiln. The difference in colour inside the bead is intriguing. 

I really rather liked this glass. I'm not a big fan of grey, but I prefer the cool, blue greys and this is definitely one of them.
