Satiny shimmering sparklers that shift greener in the kiln. Xenon is semi-translucent, and kiln-strikes to a nice dark pine green. Heavy XXenon is much more opaque. It can bloom with a bluish haze, especially where encased. The usual cautions for an adventurine color apply: limit with long hot garaging and encase with care. Heavy versions are best suited for surface work, but they can be encased and imploded with caution.
Size: Diameter 5-7mm, length 20", weight per rod .07 lb, approximately 12-15 rods per pound. There is a quarter pound minimum per color. All TAG rods are first quality.
ATTENTION: 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.
