Thanks Kenny. I thought of making a couple rods and then performing the thread test but figured it would work fine from side by side gathers. The heat was definitely the same as they were on the same punty. Amounts were variable, though. I would try and refine it for a more accurate deflection measurement but there was just no bend.

Hard to say how different the Brossphate is from Cristalica but given their purposes I would say they are likely quite different.

Pete,
I can cut a ring from cylinder that is layered...Brossphate-Chalcedony-Cristalica. No stress is indicated in the ring test.
Knowing there is stress, but that it is somehow offset in the layering, I do not plan on using this combination. Should a successful ring test bring me calm in this instance?
