Calcium Zircon Silicate


Oxide Weight239.41
Formula Weight239.41
If this formula is not unified correctly please contact us.

Was used in high fire glazes as the sole opacifier. It can be blended with other zirconium products for special finishes.
It is no longer manufactured.

This was an ideal opacifier for use in chrome-tin pink and maroon glazes since the calcium enhanced the development of the color.
