Some melting points of common substances, courtesy of
the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (editor: Weast).
Sand (silicon dioxide, or Quartz): 1723 C
(some sands are mixtures of other materials, like
calcium carbonate, but many sands have quartz in them)
MgF2: 1261 C
Salt (I'll assume you mean NaCl): 801 C
Sugar (glucose and dextrose have the same
melting points): 146 C
Copper: 1083.4 C

Follow-Up #1: Can you melt sand without flux?
Sand can never melt until some kind of flux is added to it.. am i rite.....??
