Effects of Medium Incorporation in the Evolution of Final Growth Forms in Crystals

Abstract

It has been pointed out [1, 2] that the final growth form of an almost perfect single crystal is very simple; in many cases it is limitingly simple, i.e., consists of a minimum number of faces characteristic of the substance sufficient to form a closed polyhedron (Fig. 1). The shape becomes more complicated if the perfection deteriorates (Fig. 2) [3, 4]. It has been shown that this is due to the deorganizing incorporation of solvent or gas [2].
