    Not to sure if this is the answer your looking for, but in atomic emission spectroscopy the line used for Mg analysis is at ~285 nm aka invisible.

    Why don't go into the lag and take solid [itex] MgCl_{2} [/itex] and put in a flame (blue,preferably)...?It's the most convincing answer u could possibly get.
