Iron actually does affect color. Fe can be in a lot of states of valence and can profoundly affect glasses that contain silver, copper or gold.

Lithium is a great place to get cords. It also reduces thermal shock substantially when used in excess. It also eats your crucible/ Hotter melts save time, but that time may get spent later banging the furnace apart replacing the pot. Hotter melts also bring cords. It's because the pot is dissolving.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
