Double Amber Purple - Northstar
Double Amber/Purple is the more intense version of NS013 Amber Purple. It produces the most exciting metallic purples and vermilions. It behaves similarly in the flame as regular Amber/Purple but because of its greater intensity more care has to be taken to prevent reduction. Double Amber/Purple can be stretched further and can be blown relatively thin without losing the vibrant purple strike. Be sure to try layering Double Amber/Purple over NS081 Blue Caramel.
Second quality glass can have the properties of odd quality glass, but may also have small stones, air bubbles, vary in tone/shade, or the shape can be very out of round. Both odd and second quality glass can provide a great value to the right person.

My favorite A/P! The rods are bubble free (in my experience), and I find just a regular kiln cycle at normal annealing temp brings out great colours! A little flame striking before it's put away can also add some variations.

This color is very nice. To the beginners. This color takes some practice, but once you have learned how to use it, the possiablitys are endless. The variations of color with different fuel/oxygen mixtures can create an entire new style of glass work for you.

Stability and versatility
by Brad S
This is bar non my favorite colors. I prefer colors with a lot of stability and non boily tendencies, and this color is it! Like the same suggests, colors from dark amber to swirling purples can be achieved. A rod of this color is always on my rod rest, and is the one I grab the most often for dots and accents.
A richer version of amber purple, another must have!
I’m very new to working with glass, but amber purple and double amber purple have been a awesome striking color to work with. Very forgiving in all types of flames and produces a vast verity of colors from rich amber yellows, to crazy transparent blues and purples. I’d highly recommend any new comers to give this a try!
Very Cool Dude
