  1. I reflect I have the chemistry upright. If any chemists are staring at correct me if I'm atrocious. The calcium compounds are transformed to calcium oxide in the 2d firing, turn to calcium hydroxide in the water and then assign to calcium carbonate in the air. There maybe a pozzolanic construct due to alumina and silica in the ash too. The highest product is a dice made perfect from wooden ash (fired twice) and crushed pottery. It devices laborious after 3 days and may maybe well no longer dissolve in water even when completely submerged for twenty-four hours. Thanks.
