As we learnt in

Borax Bead Test -

B2O3 on heating combines with a number of coloured transition metal oxides Co, Ni, Cr, Cu, Mn, etc. to form correspending metaborates which posses characteristic colour.

- wherein

CoSO_{4}\overset{\Delta }{\rightarrow}CaO+SO_{3}

CoO+B_{2}O_{3}\rightarrow Co\left ( BO_{2} \right )_{2}

Cobalt metaborate (blue)

 

B2Oon heating, reacts with a number of transition metal oxides, Co, Ni, etc. to form metaborates that have a characteristic colour.
