Default Lime Green???

I just used a rod that I received as a gift...it wasn't tagged so I don't know what it is...but I love it!!! It's a 104 COE and I can only describe it as lime green with a core. Any ideas?

I think it's Parrot green too. Which is a shame 'cause it was an odd lot and I don't think there's a ton of it left around. But some people don't like it so you might get lucky.

It's parrot green (also known as Key Lime Green) The first version was parrot green and then when Kiwi came out it was pretty much the same...Then the batches changed and the Kiwi came into a more of a lt lime green with a dark core. I do have some of the original parrot green so pm if you want me to send a picture to make sure it's the right stuff!

Oh my gosh....thanks for the compliment! My Chaos beads are improving...not great yet, but I'm working on it. I'm obsessed...I attempt at least one of those every time I torch!

Actually...about the color, Anouk made one with a similar color....total coincidence, but if I were going to copy someone...it would be her....OMG, her chaos beads are A-freakin' mazing!!!!!

I'd go with Parrot Green too.
Lime green with a core.

Yup parrot green. I have quite a bit, I keep meaning to sell it, but then I use it for something and change my mind!
