What colour does Lithium turn when burned? If the question is "What colour is the product of combustion of lithium, namely lithium oxide ?" then the answer is "white". ( See: http://www.webelements.com/webelements/compounds/text/Li/Li2O1- 12057248.html ) If you mean what colour is a flame produced by burning lithium the answer is "red". It is used in fireworks to produce red. ( See: http://www.chm.bris.ac.uk/webprojects1997/RebeccaH/#colour )
