NS-008 Dark Ruby is the most saturated of the transparent striking rubies Northstar produces. It must be worked in a hot oxidizing flame to prevent liveriness. Because it is so intense it can be easily flame struck. It is most useful for small sculptural accents, cane work, and stringers. When fully struck, it can yield a rich opaque Chinese red.
The pack weight is 50grms and there will be 2/3 rods per pack depending on the rod dia. These rods are smaller in length at only 250mm long.
