Chromium and its salts may be detected by the fact that they give a deep green bead when heated with borax, or that on fusion with sodium carbonate and nitre, a yellow mass of an alkaline chromate is obtained, which, on solution in water and acidification with acetic acid, gives a bright yellow precipitate on the addition of soluble lead salts.

Certain substances, such as the precious metals, are quite insoluble in the bead, but float about in it.
Titanium oxide when fused with microcosmic salt in the oxidizing flame yields a bead which is yellowish in the heat but colourless after cooling.
In the reducing flame the bead becomes violet, more readily on the addition of tin; in the presence of iron it becomes blood-red.
