Am I looking at a cobra guinea?

I can see areas where it's clear and your photo I attached shows plenty reason to say, single seam multi color looping, but not exactly Guinea. Never seen a CAC except for the lopping, quite like this. ya even got a little pig tail on one end, pretty cool that which indicates some hand gathering element about it. . IDK as the colors are weird. Would need to have that in my hands to come up with better than a striped transparent Cobra/cyclone. In the case of CAC, when in doubt: color, color, color, the same as a Guinea tells it all. Well lets say, in most because I have some  Cobra/cyclone   dug-up half pieces that do not all fit Guinea's palette for being transparent. And a whole Guinea Cobra too, not dug-up but chippy as well. It's spotted as Guineas are and internal multi-colored looping as expected.  

Regardless, in yor photo below, this is internal loping I likes to see in a single seam cobra. for the outer swirling, in the other photos, it would fit in the Exotic arena:

Is there such a thing as a green based cobra?

Yeah I get that, but having a heck of a time making a good shot of my Guinea/cobra but, working on it. My dug up pieces are not comparable to it and yours, just samples for knowledge.  Cool, yes but old photo and graphics in them is like antique junk now. 

chocomibs, Hybrid in CAC like yours is called "Exotic", a whole different level that ups the stakes in rarity and value. .  Take an aspirin or call 911. 🤩

If, and I mean if, this is a CAC.
I believe “Striped Transparent” would be the name to call it. (maybe a "submarine")

I appreciate all opinions and they are needed here.
Nice find!
Marble—On!!

It's more than 5/8 but less than 11/16

What size is it? Transparent green base guinea cobra? With strandy filaments from one end of the ribbon to the other, bleeding transparent colors? I don't see it.

I have sold 15 CAC guinea's this last year. Two of those were CAC cobra guinea's and they looked nothing like the original above. I have never ever seen a real CAC guinea without a very slight curved or straight cut line, or two straight cut lines. I have never seen or heard of any green base CAC guinea. A CAC guinea has pieces of different colored frit or stretched splotches of color on or in the surface. CAC guinea's do not show any typical 9 hand gather twist. Even if it was a CAC Guinea Cobra if mint it is $1000.00 or most are less. I sold one of my mint 11/16 CAC Cobra guinea for $550.00. No matter what it is ?  The original here for sure is not any where in the mint range. It has dings and big chips. No need for any loupe for condition. It may be a older torch marble Scott Patrick or one of many others.

I’m hard pressed to think the OP might be a SP. I wish Bill Towe was around. He has the best CAC collection. He has all the ones we want. I’m going to stick with a Cyclone because of the spin in pic 2. 🔥
