Arc melted button.
An example of the element Chromium

Sample Image
Chromium Arc melted button
Arc melted button.
I've been experimenting with a very crude arc melting furnace made from a box of firebrick, an old 275A stick welder, two graphite electrodes, and a small graphite crucible. I melted this button of solid chromium down out of a small pile of the chromium plate described above. Not bad for a $15 furnace (not counting the welder).
