Light Ruby is a vibrant transparent striking ruby. One of the three shades of ruby, Northstar Light Ruby is the least saturated and is meant to be kiln struck. Though it can not be stretched as far as Northstar Dark Ruby, the advantage it offers is the ability to be worked long without muddying. It is well suited for sculpture and assembled blown work.
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.
