    Rock salt, it's hard like a rock! But most prefer to use sea salt.

    In Italian Alps, goats climb on steep dams in order to lick our the salt exuding from the stones. But it is more of a nitrate, kind of the salt of the earth apparently.

    Im assuming youd like to save the crucible? Because one option is to turn it upside down on a table and smack it with a hammer, then scrape the pieces of carbuncle off the shattered crucible with a chisel

    But first, Id try the reheating idea. Could use a candle or a Bunsen burner. I think youd only have to get it hot enough so that the crucible temperature melts the bottom layer of the carbuncle; it might slide right out in one big chunk. Then the hammer
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    Roger Guasco was disciple of Kamala Jnana, so he practiced the same way.
