Northstar Midnight is a deep opaque blue. It is great for stringers and thin cane work and can be stretched out far! It is heat and flame sensitive. It must be warmed up slowly and once glowing, heat gently. Because the color is so intense it must be worked in an oxidizing flame. If the flame is not oxidizing enough, the color will develop grayish brown streaks.
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.
