Terranova2.1 is a highly saturated silver ruby. A tremendously varied color, it is capable of blues, greens, purples, reds, browns and can produce copper red webs in a reduction flame. The depth and hue of these colors are dependent on the heat treatment given. Working hotter or colder, doing a lot of shaping or a little, all of these and more will affect the color.
Work hot, cool and reheat. Reduce for metallic effects.
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.
