The mineralizing effect of sodium fluoride, boric acid, and a natural fluorine-bearing mineral (topaz concentrate) on the synthesis from talc of ceramic pigments with magnesium metasilicate, forsterite, and diopside structures is investigated. It is shown that NaF is the most active mineralizer. It is noted that NaF has a positive effect not only on the synthesis of crystalline structure but also on the chromaticity of the pigments. The pigment compositions developed can be widely used to tint ceramic pastes, glazes and glasses, in the manufacture of building materials, and to make paints.
