Shooting Star - Trautman
This color was a happy accident, one of those fun "chocolate in the peanut butter" kind of colors; folks loved it so much they begged for more! A mix of the stable Stardust aventurine with reactive silvered A/P: Shooting Star is very light and features a blue base. The rods look a lot like the popular Blue Stardust -- UNTIL YOU MELT IT! Then the amber/purple really comes out!
Flame strikes, but the strike deepens in the kiln at regular annealing temperatures. The overall effect is a blue-green amber/purple with the stable sparkles of a Blue Stardust. Shooting Star layers beautifully and retains a lot of transparency, especially when blown thin; safe to implode.

This color is amazing! Leaves that sparkle but with an awesome array of colors depending on how you strike it. This is my go to color for sure! Definitely grab this if you haven't already!
