An alkaline earth used as a high-temperature flux.  Similar to barium, but slightly more powerful.  Used as a flux in glazes above 1090°C.  Can produce similar effects to Whiting and Zinc Oxide.  Can also be used as a non-poisonous alternative to Lead Oxide.  Typically used in stoneware glazes.  Excess additions will produce a crystalline matt surface.
