Garnet is a member the self striking ruby family. Garnet is the medium intensity shade and can develop a deep brown hue. It is best suited for medium thickness blown work and highlights. When using Garnet, do so in a neutral to oxidizing flame. Once hot Garnet will turn transparent, but as it cools it turns a uniform ruby red. The strike is easily repeatable and the final color is not affected by kilning. The final shade of red is slightly darker than the initial color of the rod. Once heated and allowed to strike, the final color can be viewed.
