Super Unobtainium - Northstar
Super Unobtainium is a dark blue sparkle. This color has lots of large crystals of metal on the surface. It is well suited for stringer application and blown work. It is easily worked and can take a lot of heat. To keep the color most vibrant, work in a neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Try to avoid deep encasement as it may cause cracking.
Please use NS119 Super Unobtainium with care and test before you make any thing that is expensive. Outside work seems to work just great with no problems. Try coating NS119 Super Unobtainium with NS086 Garnet or NS088 Pomegranate to achieve a brilliant ruby sparkle. Any transparent color coated over NS119 Super Unobtainium looks great. NS119 Super Unobtainium has lots more sparkle, but does not have the Gun Metal surface of NS104 Unobtainium.
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.

Best sparkly blue out!

Some people have trouble with this color I/O and encased. Just have make sure to base color in work. I use on I/O and never have checking issues.
This is one of my all time favorite colors. Has issues with deep encasement, though some have found ways to work it in, I have not. Surface application however is creamy, forgiving, and very crisp looking. The sparkle effect of this color is it’s true gem. Even in thin layers it is a solid color. Works in just about any flame, no boiling, no hazing. For beginners, this is one of the more forgiving colors I have ever worked with.
