The heated lead oxidizes creating hot litharge, a liquid that destroys all minerals except the precious metals. Everything is destroyed and dissolved and the precious metals are drawn into the lead. The cupel acts as a blotter for the litharge and soon all of the lead has oxidized leaving only the precious metals as a bead on the center of the cupel.
