A silica crucible is a type of laboratory glassware that is used for high-temperature applications, such as melting, calcination, or combustion of materials. It is made of pure silica, which is a heat-resistant and chemically inert material that can withstand temperatures up to 1000°C without deforming or reacting with the materials being heated.

Silica crucibles are available in different sizes and shapes, such as cylindrical, conical, or flat-bottomed, to fit different experimental requirements. Silica crucibles are often used in chemistry, metallurgy, and materials science for various applications, such as the preparation of inorganic compounds, the analysis of minerals, or the production of alloys. They are also used in research and development of new materials, such as ceramics or semiconductors.

Silica crucibles are highly durable and can be reused multiple times after proper cleaning and sterilization. However, they can be brittle and require careful handling to avoid breakage or cracking. Silica crucibles are an essential component of laboratory equipment for high-temperature experiments and processes.
