When a concentrated solution of borax acts on silver nitrate a borate of silver is formed.
A similar effect is produced by rubbing two lumps of borate of soda one against the other.
Borates thus made, melt generally by themselves; but admixed with borate of soda, they fuse much more readily, give a clear bead.
The product responded to tests for sodium, potassium, chlorate, borate and nitrate.
The mineral cryolite (Na3AlF6) is an important substance, and the nitrate, carbonate, and borate also occur in nature.
