Eben Horton is on a distinguished road
I had a big project about 10 years ago that required me to go up to Boston and rent some studio time at a public access studio there. They used the original spectrum nuggets that had borax in it. Their furnaces looked like they were just eaten alive by it. They charged hot and I think that a lot of that glass attack could have been avoided by charging colder. It was bad enough for me to know to avoid that cullet at all costs in my own equipment
