Blue Stars (Organic)Edit

From PyroGuideEdit

 Jump to: navigation, searchIn pyrotechnics, some of the most common colour effect stars are blue stars. They're a classic favourite of those wishing for a powerful colour that can be used in almost every device. Organically fuelled stars tend to burn with a flame whereas metallic fuelled stars will burn much brighter than the organically fuelled ones.
