Description

Although expensive, the depleted uranium oxide is sometimes used as a pigment in glazes. It produces red and orange colors at about 940 C while slightly higher temperatures give a soft yellow color (Kawai's yellow). It can turn gray or black at temperatures above 1260 C.

Synonyms and Related Terms
