Chrome


As far as what we learned in the class...other than testing is exhausing..is that chrome will produce a variety of colors in varous bases.

Here are three colors, all are with 0.5% chrome.

So the first is a magnesium oxide dominated base, the second is a sodium dominated base, and the third is a ...I think it is a boron, lithium and 10% titanium so it is hard to say.

But either way a dramatic color variation.

More later....

Chrome and zinc usually give brown, so maybe there's zinc in that far right tile.
