I’ve noticed a good trend with Maker Geeks Crystal PLA… They tend to be darker than other translucent PLAs. This color seems like the closest you can get to forest green and still be clear. Perhaps this can be a stand in for an emerald in a tiara or necklace.

Maker Geeks is a made in USA filament with free shipping for all orders to the US. They have a wide selection and offer everything from PLA, ABS, PETG, TPU (flex), and specialty filaments. Maker Geeks is sold in 1KG sizes on plastic spools. They also offer Grab Bag filaments at discount and a monthly 2 roll subscription.
