Egyptian White Sands - Northstar
Egyptian White Sand is a rich opaque color reminiscent of elephant ivory or the bleached carved hieroglyphic tablets excavated from ancient Egypt. It is not sensitive to flame chemistry but must be worked in a soft gentle heat to prevent surface scarring and boiling. Once worked, the color can be heated more rapidly and take a larger volume of heat. The key is working the color slowly until it is melted in smooth.
It is a formulation based on our NS054 Star White, but one that offers even greater opacity and intensity. NS094 Eqyptian White Sand's antiqued color and grainy texture is ideal for shading in sculptural applications such as murrini cane, while its intensity allows for its application in extremely thin blown work. It is also an ideal background color.
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.

Pretty good off white
by Drew T -
It even looks white (not even off) sometimes when pulled in stringers. regardless of the color it does boil rather easily same as the star white.
