Pros : Rich streaks of medium to dense golds and dark golden browns. The photo shown is a bit brighter than the piece I got, but regardless of the intensity, this glass can be used for many applications. The first time I used it for tree branches.

Cons : Longer cuts were more difficult if too narrow (less than an inch).
Other Thoughts : Root Beer is a great name for this glass!

We chose the 96 Expansion because it facilitates the creation of glasses with friendly forming characteristics. The wide variety of glass types we manufacture demands a formulation that has great flexibility.
