A crucible is a container made from a material that doesn’t melt easily and used for high temperature chemical reactions.
Platinum crucibles offer very high temperature strength. Its contents can be heated in excess of 1000°C without the crucible melting.
Being a noble metal, Platinum does not oxidise or corrode, thus does not interfere with the chemical reaction occurring during the heating process.
Inevitably, a Platinum crucible will reach the end of its life at some point. Once it becomes cracked or misshaped beyond repair, it must be replaced.
