Real solutions are produced by fire, or by introducing and accumulating a great quantity of caloric between the particles of bodies; and this species of solution in caloric is usually called fusion . This operation is commonly performed in vessels called crucibles, which must necessarily be less fusible than the bodies they are intended to contain.
