Irrid - Northstar
Irrid is the least saturated of the transparent striking colors. When oxidized it produces a silvery transparent metallic blue. When reduced, NS014 Irrid turns a light sea green color. Irrid can be worked hot and is another forgiving striking color. Try layering it over an opaque to yield new effects.

Wonderful blue/green striking color
by Ian R -
This is a marvelous blue/green striking color. It works with ease and doesnt go "earth tone" as easy as other strikers.

This is my favorite blue green striking color. It works with ease and doesn't go "earth tone" as quick as other strikers.
Best striking blue there is!

This is easily my favorite Glass color to work with! Whether you encase it, or use it as is, this color yields gorgeous shapes of blues. Simply stunning and is incredibly easy to work with. So far, no boiling issues
Irrid is a great light striking cobalt for layering and compressions.

I now love this color after learning how to use it. Being a striking color I was working too oxidized. Encasing it with thin clear rod strokes in a slightly reducing flame gives beautiful sky blues and hints of transparent yellow. Deeply encased in marbles it still holds it's color without getting overly muddy from multiple heatings.
Awesome looking color that works easily! Different flames really gives a cool variation! Made a cool implosion with it as well
