CoO is a metallic coloring oxide that produces blue in glazes at all temperatures (unless in very high percentages where it will be black). Black Cobalt Oxide is a key source of CoO used in glazes, glass, and enamels. Cobalt is the most powerful ceramic colorant and it is stable in most systems, it appears in many recipes at 1% or lower. Like copper, it melts very actively in oxidation. If it is mixed into a fluid frit base in high enough a percentage, it will completely crystallize during cooling. Cobalt is also useful as a body and slip stain (see the oxide CoO oxide for more information). However, cobalt materials are very expensive, this severely limits its practical use in many things.
