I have a collection of blue and green bottles in my kitchen windows. When the afternoon sun comes through and catches the light through them, it's quite stunning. These are too washed out to really catch any light. They're not nearly as dark as the photo shows, they're much, much paler. I was disappointed with the color. A much darker turquoise would have been a nice eye-catcher in the window. This just looks clear when the sun comes through. Very disappointed.
