That is an excellent question. Gold-bearing striking glasses can appear pale or colorless in the cold sheet and "strike" or change significantly to target color when fired. To promote proper color development in this group of strikers, we suggest a 45 minute hold around 1225 degrees Fahrenheit
That's 662 C for the rest of us. Round about the slumping temperature
on the way up to process temperature. Without this hold in the Pre-rapid Heat Soak portion of the firing cycle, the glass may not fully strike.
