Required Mass


Ball mill well to integrate. Rolls well, but may be cut or pumped quite easily as well. Precipitation methods may also be used to prepare it if a ball mill is not available, just screening the composition doesn't work very well.


Sulfurless, very slow and sparse. Best used in large quantities of smallish stars ejected at high altitude.

About 5% water works well for pumping. Pine charcoal is best for the most attractive sparks. Any aqueous binder may be used, Dextrin works quite well.
