Northstar Jade is a saturated fully opaque plant green. It can be stretched out for stringer applications or thin blown work. With the reformulations that have been made it can be worked in a much hotter flame, but be careful not to overheat. Stay in a neutral to oxidizing environment. As with the workability improvements, Northstar Jade's COE is far improved. It can be encased and used for inside-out applications. Be sure to run a thorough annealing schedule with encased Northstar Jade. For a neat color effect, try layering a transparent striking color such as Northstar Multi over Northstar Jade.
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.
