Default Color identification help?

I found two bundles of glass rods - they look identical, an off-avocado green color.

I made a couple snap charms with them, and the sculptural edges go bit yellowish after annealing. Really cool look.

They're marked 56411 and 56414.

Anybody have a clue what they might be? Any help would be appreciated!

Maybe... but it looks way too yellow in Mikey's picture. Here's what mine looks like: (and updated to add: Thanks for the info, Rebecca!)

I bought a studio, resold all the equipment & tools, and kept the glass. There was 4 lbs of this stuff mixed in, wheeee! I'm keeping an 'Odds and Wonky' color spreadsheet, and didn't know what to call the stuff!

Looks like the right glass to me.

My glass hardly ever looks the same as the paddle in the store.

Awesome colour! inspires me to find some

Apple blush was my first thought when I saw your fantastic faces, too.

I have some from a few years back, but I am not home to look at the labels right now. I believe one was a hand pulled one.
