Aurora Rod - Northstar
Ratings & Reviews

This color rocks...wide ranges of bright metallic greens and fades of pinks...the only reason I rated it a 4 is because of how sensitive it is, you really need to encase in clear to protect it

This color is awesome under clear encasement, especially if you "marblize", such that some of the Aurora is exposed. Lay this color over a neutral background, like Butterscotch for more depth. Depending on the atmosphere, Aurora will achieve brilliant blues, greens, purples, sea-greens, pinks, yellows, browns. It's an amazing diverity of color spectrum. Use a high oxy flame to bring out blues, greens, purples, or a reducing flame for browns, pinks, yellows. Do not kiln anneal this color if you want to retain the beautiful colors; if you kiln anneal, this color will turn back to browns and yellows. This color has a lot of Cu and Fe; be aware, sometimes particles of Fe will cause cracking issues.

This color can truly make a piece stand out all by it's self. The variety of hues obtained with only a singe flame chemistry are astounding. Not to mention the extreme pallet change this color experiences between an oxygenating and reducing flame. Great for making stunning visual effects with a single color.
