Northstar #116 Aquamania Sluggers (372grms)

Exp. #116 Aquamania is a color based off of NS-153 Nemo with an opalescent quality. It is a vibrant aqua marine blue that is flame stable & nearly air free. The goal with this color is to minimize the livering effect caused by copper in the glass being exposed to a reducing atmosphere of a propane rich flame. It will work very similar to NS-153 Nemo with the opalescent value from NS-154 Ghost.
