Dark Bottle Green Recipe

Hi there! It's been an awfully long time since I was here, but thought I would ask a question. I hope everyone is doing well!

Does anyone have any recommendations for a dark bottle green recipe? We melt Gaffer Batch here at the Canberra Glassworks. I have a recipe for a tealy-green but it is not dark enough.

Per batch of 100kg it is:

Iron 500g
Cobalt 1g
Nic 1g
Copper 20g

I saw this thread from 2014:

I have attached an image of the density we're after as inspiration. I have also attached some pics of samples of teal greens that we already melt, they're too light. Any suggestions? How about this one below?

Olive Green Bottle Glass
sand 100 kilos
potassium chromate 500 grams
manganese dioxide 1500 grams

If anyone has any recommendations that would be wonderful.
Thank you!
