The only drawback to these materials is that they are rare in nature: wurtzite boron nitride is formed in volcanoes, and lonsdaleite is the result of meteorites crashing into Earth.
By means of approaching interface of the solid body--molten metal phases it diminishes down to 9.82 at 2000 [degrees]C and 10 wt.% at 2100 [degrees]C, which is explained for induction melting by different magnetic permeability of titanium and titanium nitride, which is significantly higher in titanium, and because of this reason temperature at the interface of the solid body-molten metal phases is much lower than on the crucible surface.
