Light Ruby - Northstar
Light Ruby is a vibrant transparent striking ruby. Of the three shades of ruby, NS007L is the least saturated and is meant to be kiln struck. Though it cannot be stretched as far as NS008 Dark Ruby, the advantage it offers is the ability to be worked long without muddying. It is well suited for sculpture and assembled blown work. NS007L is not overly sensitive to flame chemistry, but to ensure it strikes to a clean ruby red work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. For an interesting effect try layering NS007L over NS027 Green Exotic.
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.
