Northstar Plum Kush is a black sparkle. It is well suited for sculptural applications and blown work. It is creamy and works easily. When working Plum Kush, do so in an oxidizing flame. A reductive environment will cause grey streaks to develop on the surface and result in a dull matte finish. When applying the color, do so gently. After it is melted in, it can take a lot of heat. This is the first black sparkle introduced to colored borosilicate palette and is a welcome addition to the palette of blacks from which to choose.
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.
