My offhand thought is cryolite= sodium alumina hexafluoride/ Very small additives would reduce the melt conditions. It would slop it up. Otherwise sodium nitrate for the runny goblet people. . Either will push the expansion around.

This is a phrase that really gets spell check maxed out. Now it wants appetite.
