The orientation of crystals of metallic silver determines the orientation of the crystals formed on the metal oxide and silver peroxide. The cause of the conservation of the orientation is the closeness of the dimensions of their planer cells. The large oxygen ions can be inserted into the surface layer of the metal as a result of the substantial decrease in the dimensions of its atoms during ionization.
