Default CIM Tuscan Teal ... info please

Is the limited CIM Tuscan Teal close in color to Leaky Pen or some other teal glass? I'm thinking of stocking up but haven't heard any one say anything about it. Love it? Hate it? Don't waste my money .... help!

I just bought some but haven't tried it yet. I also bought Trade Winds. I did make one small bead with it and it's similar to Leaky Pen maybe a little bluer. Both colors are very dark so I think I'm going make encased stringers out of them and try that.

I've tried it Angie, Tuscan Teal is a beautiful dark transparent teal, amazing colour, not like Leaky Pen which is blue.

However a new colour called Tradewinds is nearly exaclty like Leaky Pen, maybe the slightest bit lighter. It is beautiful !! and does not explode or scum like most of the Leaky Pen i have.
