Abstract
The Mn-and Fe-rich micro-crystalline precipitates formed in the decorations of lead glazes during ceramic firing are responsible for colour, shine and opacity, among other visual characteristics, besides being the most important relics of the technology. Due to their small size and growth habits, the micro-crystalline precipitates may remain unidentified on polished cross sections of the glazes. Thin-section petrography, combined with synchrotron-radiation X-ray micro-diffraction, appears to be ...
