Mine is .78. I don't really know what the strontium calcium ratio would do for the glass. It's great in phosphates, no argument there . I do know the barium/Calcium one is spot one and make the clear absolutely brilliant moreso if there's a lot of potassium. .

I think another issue that hasn't come out yet Jordan is what the slow cooling of the mix does to the opacity. I would suspect it's a major influence. If you were pulling that from the pot, It would be really nice. Mine tend to strike in the lehr and really strike if annealed twice.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
