Cold Characteristics

Opaque, dark purple.

Working Notes

Torch: Gold Purple in rod form becomes lighter in color once flameworked. When molten, this glass has a low viscosity and can be quite soft, which may result in a blurred edge where it meets other glasses.

 Kiln: Not recommended for kilnforming.


The name "Gold Purple" comes from the gold that is used as an ingredient in the manufacturing process.
