The use of the blowpipe has been inferred from metalline remains discovered in sepulchral tumuli of the Mississippi valley.
Iron has the property of imbibing a greater quantity of phlogiston than is necessary to give it the metalline form.
By this means he prevents the Zinc from taking fire, and being converted into flowers; so that it sublimes in its metalline form.
Enamels are made of several colours by the addition of this or that metalline calx.
The difference of its colour depends on the degree of fire it hath undergone, and on the metalline substances vitrified with it.
If less nitre be used, the calx is not so white; the glass it produces is more like a metalline glass, and is more easily reduced.
This dissolves in alkalies, and combines with metalline bases to form various coloured compounds, termed Purpurates.
It is now alloyed with no other metalline substance but Gold or Silver, if there were any in the mixed mass.
The metal thus calcined easily recovers its metalline form on the addition of a phlogiston.
Antimony, as hath been already said, is a sort of ore consisting of a metalline or reguline part mineralized by Sulphur.
