The quarter pound package contained mostly light coloured, whitish, rods, and one kind of pinkish. This was typical of all the packages.
It really did go blue, a pale turquoise that developed a light metallic layer - in the flame. That was a surprise - it does not look blue at all.
The odd rod out - the pink/red rod - I used for the horse himself, and ... the difference is quite dramatic. When it was molten and I was laying it down, it had a lot of transparent in it. Much more so than the light rods.
Over all - this glass is a puzzler. The light rods went light turquoise. The red rod when streaky pink and blue. The pink rod really lives up to the name Blueberry Raspberry - the light rods - are less variable.
