Northstar Turquesa is a more saturated version of Northstar Irrid and produces similar effects. When worked in an oxidizing flame, Turquesa yields more pronounced metallic blues. When reduced, deep sea greens result. Because it is more saturated than Irrid, Turquesa can be used for thinner blown work without thinning out. Try layering it over an opaque to yield new effects. Also, try reducing Turquesa, then encasing with clear.
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.
