A felted mass of needle-shaped mullite crystals grow in all directions from the platy relicts of the original clay particles. Aluminium oxide can lower silica's melting point, as can any oxide. Rock dust, crushed quartz, silica sand, pure flux alone can make a glaze. Calcium oxide contributed by wollastonite, a principle flux in high temp glazes: It must be used with care in high-fire bodies because its active fluxing action can produce a body that is too volatile (melting if slightly overfired).
