Last Chance! We took all of our remaining Gaia frit and melted it back down into cane.
Gaia is a reducing glass made from crushed Effetre Dark Emerald Green which when we had it tested for lead, tested above the limit for Lead Free at 475ug/g. This is why we’ve discontinued it.
Gaia can produce surface coloration ranging from blues to greens and creams. Heavy reduction can yield red streaks, while very heavy reduction can develop a metallic iridescence.
Work in a neutral flame, cool until the glow is gone, then reduce.
Double Helix Seconds
Our second quality rods are less than perfect in shape. They may be too large, too small, too short, chipped, twisted or have an inclusion. They have all passed both our compatibility test and our color test, just not our pretty rod test.
