Mystery Aventurine - Northstar
NS078 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!

Mystery aventurine has always been one of my favorites from the first time i used it. Easy to use works well with most other colors. I work it the same as amber purple, burn off the haze & strike for amazing purples with a good amount of aventurine sparkle -beautiful!

Cool sparkly striker!
by Patty Melts
One of my favorite colors to work. Best heated slowly but no problems with boiling when it’s hot. You can get some deep purples, blues, or greens! It’s so cool to see what colors will come out of mystery aventurine.
Easily one of my favorite colors and it’s easy to work with. Have always gotten quality rods from MGA.
