611100 Northstar Black Lightning Borosilicate Glass Rods

Northstar Black Lightning is a very dense black with silver. Northstar Black Lightning can yield a mirror like blue metallic finish or if over-reduced an organic earthy tone. To keep Northstar Black Lightning most vibrant, work in a super oxidizing environment until you are finished with the piece. Then, turn the flame down and bathe the piece in a super reducing flame for several seconds to produce the mirror like sheen. For another great effect, encase Black Lightning with clear. This color can be stretched out and is great for blown work. If heavily encased, be sure to anneal thoroughly. This is the bigger brother of Northstar Alaskan Thunder. 
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.
