Amber/Purple: Of the striking colors in the borosilicate palette the Amber/purples are some of the most exciting. NS-13 is the first in a series of five Amber/Purple colors. It is well suited for sculpture and moderately thin blown work. The color can produce pale yellows to ambers to a deep purple. To yield the most vibrant purples, work in a hot neutral to slightly oxidizing flame. Reduction will affect the strike. Try encasing your favorite Amber/Purple with NS-32 Violet, or NS-31 Lavender. To enhance NS-13 Amber/Purple try backing it with NS-54 Star White. For a complete guide to working NS-13 Amber/Purple refer to the Northstar bead brochure and Northstar Newsletter issue 2.

Amber Purple is one of the most versatile and fun to work with colors in the Boro palette. Thin veils, pulled into stringers, layered under or over other colors, a color with near infinite possibilities.

Amber purple is one of the most creamy smooth colors, easy to work with. I love the variety of shades of colors from using an oxidizing or reducing flame. Rather easy to control. truly gives amber all the way to purple, and everything in between. Great for layering! Try over white, pink, yellow or maybe a sense sparkle color. Looks great with white highlights in your piece, or used next to black, it really pops.
