Hyacinth Rod - Northstar
Hyacinth is a lush fully opaque faux purple. It is great for blown work and thin stringer application. It is heat and flame sensitive so it must be heated up slowly to prevent boiling. Once it glows red, Hyacinth will take heat well. Because of its intensity it is sensitive to reduction. If the flame is not oxidizing enough gray and brown streaks will develop on the surface of the glass. Try it with a layer of #NS032 Violet for a deep purple effect!

Iffy but can be done
by tristan b
Color looks great when worked properly but it does crack easy. I had a few rods of it and made a few bubblers with it and it didn’t like binding with clear too well.
