A lighted coal, smoldering amid ashes; -- used chiefly in the plural, to signify mingled coals and ashes; the smoldering remains of a fire.
A particle of solid material that emits radiant energy due either to its temperature or the process of combustion on its surface. (See Spark). Class A and Class D combustibles burn as embers under conditions where the flame typically associated with fire does not necessarily exist. This glowing combustion yields radiant emissions in parts of the radiant energy spectrum that are radically different from those parts affected by flaming combustion. Specialized detectors, specifically designed to detect those emissions, should be used in applications where this type of combustion is expected. In general, flame detectors are not intended for the detection of embers.
A type of drug, made from crushed and dried leaves. Two main varieties exist, "hot" and "cold"; hot embers are stimulants and cold are depressants. One can tell the difference betwen the two by the color of paper the dried roots are wrapped in - red or brown for hot and blue or grey for cold. Both are addictive, and may cause various side effects depending on the type.
