Transparent light-to-medium blue, similar to 001414-0576. There will be variance in the cold rods as some have streaks of darker blue.
Torch: 001234-0576 strikes to a transparent blue-purple in the flame, but may develop light streaks of purple and/or pink. Work in a cooler, oxidizing atmosphere. May develop a light brown color on the surface of the glass if worked in the presence of too much propane (or fuel).
Kiln: Blue-violet. A linear, streaked design may develop upon firing and may be visible whether fired lengthwise or on end. Hue and saturation may also differ slightly when compared to sheet glass; a wider range is accepted due to changes that occur in the forming process.
The color of struck 001234-0576 has more transparency and the hue has more blue undertones than torchworked sheet glass of the same style. Consider encasing with clear to protect the surface from developing a light brown color in the hotter, neutral flame chemistry that you would use for most other styles. We advise labeling all striking glasses.
