Mystery Aventurine - Northstar
Mystery Aventurine is a brilliant aventurine color that strikes to deep purples and reds. When thinned it turns a pale yellowish amber. Mystery Aventurine is well suited for blown work and stringer application. It is not overly sensitive to reduction and is best worked in a hot neutral flame. For the best strike, kiln striking is the way to go. When using this color heavily encased keep work time to a minimum and kiln anneal thoroughly. Mystery Aventurine looks great over NS076 Onyx and NS054 Star White.

One of my favorites!
by Christopher D -
This color has quickly become one of my favorites to use for reverse implosions. When used for the like it creates a very cool "space like" effect with greens and purples. It has a smooth color changing gradient with sparkles all the way. In my opinion a great standalone color, base color, or accent to other greens.
Best green color out there
by Tristan b
This is by far my favorite color of the green family. I found out when use it properly it has awesome blue striking properties. it doesn’t crack when incased and it even has a sparkle to it when it doesn’t strike. In implosions it looks amazing and even surface work at the right reducing flame.
Broad Spectrum Color Possibities

This is a very tolerant color with a broad spectrum of color possibilities based on your flame chemistry. Encase Northstar’s Double Amber Purple with it and you’ll get a whole rainbow of sparkly color. Vary your flame chemistry for a variety of outcomes. Great color.

Beautiful aventurine striking color with a broad spectrum color possibilities. Love the dark greens to purples you can achieve with this color.
Gorgeous blues and greens can be achieved but as with all adventurines be careful during the annealing process. Although I do enjoy it in implosions and stringer work as well!
