Thanks so much for posting the analysis for rutile. As things seem to
happen so often on this list, recently I needed this info. A ^6 glaze
containing tin and rutile at the teaching studio was turning pink, with no
apparent source of chrome. We thought that one of the ingredients had
gotten contaminated. But I then remembered you had posted the new analysis
of rutile. The hitchhiking chrome is enough to turn this previously beige
glaze pink. Saved a lot of testing.... now I just have to change the tin
to zircopax.

Thanks again for this little detail!
