Thanks for the info on Boric, I always wondered how much would disolve into solution and always avoided it for fear of complication.

I just re-read the entire thread. The big takeaways are:

1) Sodium contaminatiion is very visible.

2) Firefly effect can be achieved with spherical aluminum. Mumbles, you already eluded to this earlier in the thread but I think it was unclear whether flake or sphere was implied.

Hey, I actually made the glitter, but I didn't have any MgAl coarser than 250mesh, so I figured better 250mesh than nothing. The resulting stars in a 50mm cylinder shell are at @3:58 in the video. Those were 15mm pumped comets. https://www.youtube....h?v=XfSH_sADlDc

Not bad. For best results need coarse magnalium
