Study of the structure of synthetic opals affected by temperature and pressure
- 73 Downloads
It is demonstrated that synthetic opals, like most natural ones, have a cristobalite rather than quartz basis, change their color from white to blue after losing their water-containing component, and form superlattices. Being affected by temperature and pressure, they undergo partial or complete crystallization to the corresponding polymorphic modifications.
