Northstar Amber/Purple: Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette, the Amber/Purples are some of the most exciting. Northstar Amber/Purple is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Try encasing your favorite Amber/Purple with Northstar Violet or Northstar Lavender. To enhance Northstar Amber/Purple try backing it with Northstar Star White.
Size: Diameter 5-7mm, length 20", weight per rod .07 lb. All Northstar rods are first quality.
Due to the weight and length of the rods you may receive .30 pound vs .25 pound (as an example) when ordering. This will cause the cost to rise and the amount you expect to pay for your glass may change.
If this is a problem, please let us know and we will “underweigh” your glass. This means instead of .25 pound you may receive .20 to .22 pound. Please be aware that it is almost impossible to pull exactly .25 pound. We will always try our best to get as close as possible to the weight that is ordered, but due to the factors stated, these weights may substantially increase the total cost of your order.
