Go read Dan Schwoerer's paper on viscosity. I'm not apologizing for referring to Eutectics.

Keep in mind that in opals, crystals grow and they collapse and they grow again. Each time, a little less and it changes the viscosity as they change. They also change expansions understandably.

When Chuck and I were designing the glasses, we were targeting where things were the first time, not five times down the road. Down that path lies madness. . What you are doing is not something we were marketing towards. I would suggest that you set aside specific parts of that, and try making some pieces with more, and some with less sodium. See what happens. Follow the glass.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
