Jade is a saturated fully opaque plant green. It can be stretched out for stringer applications or thin blown work. With the reformulations that have been made it can be worked in a much hotter flame, but be careful not to overheat. Stay in a neutral to slightly oxidizing environment. As with the workability improvements, Jade's C.O.E. is far improved. It can be encased and used for inside-out applications. Be sure to run a thorough annealing schedule with encased Jade. For a neat color effect, try layering a transparent striking color such as NS03 Multi over it.
