Jet Black - Northstar
Jet Black is a very dense black. It is well suited for sculptural applications and blown work. It is creamy and works easily, making it a welcome addition to the palette of blacks from which to choose. When working NS125 Jet Black, do so in an oxidizing flame. If worked in a reductive environment it will develop gray streaks on the surface and result in a dull matte finish. When applying the color, do so gently. After it is melted in it can take a lot of heat. NS125 Jet Black is great in combination with many colors and serves as a background for striking colors.
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.

This is by far the best black I've tried to date. Super easy to work with. I've never had any problems with boiling. One thing I love about this black is that its quite dense in color so even when pulled out super fine into stringers, it retains its deep black color. I would highly recommend this color to anyone!

It takes a while to grey out a bit but otherwise amazing color!

This is the best black I've found. It is easily workable, and doesn't boil. Works great for traditional tubes and exceptionally well in "vac-stacks". I will never use another black, I wish I would have found it sooner.
