You can try iris gold too. Also Aurae sometimes will do that. All the silver glasses can have their ways so you might need to fiddle.

reduce slowly and gently. I find Helios easy to over-reduce.

Yes, it becomes over-reduced very quickly and gets dirty shade that is not possible to remove

It's a batch thing too. I have older helios that is nice bright gold reduction, but the last batch turn blueish every time.

Also play with what part of the flame you are using for reduction. Below the flame will often pull extra colors on my torch, but not always depending on my oxy/gas mix.
