One of my normals is light green with green through wings but not on upper back (see photos). Is he split for opaline?
When the body colour shows on the wings of a normal budgie it is called opalescence. Sometimes male birds showing opalescence will be split for opaline but it is not a positive indication. Females can show opalescence too but they can't be split for opaline
