Default Pre bubble shine tubes !

A friend gave me a pack of rods (with unidentified COE). the first problem it is to find the COE (i am working on that). The mystery has to do with with some shine tubes of 5-6 mm of diameter and 1 mm walls. When i start to warm them on torch they start to make very small air bubbles (hundreds of them). It looks very funny but until now i have never read or see this kind of effect (only in fusing ).
So does any one know this kind of tubes? company and COE ...

Sounds like the seeded glass tubes I have, which are 104 COE. Got a picture?

If they are 104 it is ok. I'll make some photos, and post them.

Lucky if they are, a lot of colors are hard to find. I'm not sure they are even still in production. Might be something to ask Mike.

Effetre Seeded Glass. It's fantastic, the green is the rarest of what you have from what I've seen. It makes wonderful beer mug beads.
