System 96 + Glasma mismatch

I had a very interesting failure recently and I thought Id post the story here. Maybe it will sound familiar to somebody or maybe it will save someone some trouble. I made murrine by fusing stacks of System 96 sheets and cutting the resulting blocks into squares. The murrine were 6 mm thick and I framed them with strips of black and white. After rolling it up I covered it with one gather of Glasma.

A week after making, I did a flat grind on the bottom and put it on a shelf. Two weeks after making, it spontaneously exploded. From the other side of the house, it sounded like somebody dropped a pile of dishes.

The obvious suspect is 12 different colors of System 96 but I have had a couple of failures using Reichenbach colors with Glasma while I didnt have a single one in my previous studio using Cristalica. I realize that Im mixing some unusual things but if anyone has any ideas, Id like to hear them.
