Light Ruby Glass Rod


Light Ruby is a vibrant transparent striking ruby. Of the three shades of ruby, Light Ruby is the least saturated and is meant to be kiln struck. Though it cannot be stretched as far as 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. Light Ruby 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 light ruby over Green Exotic. Available in 1/4 increments.
