Recently, much attention has been paid to the influence of melt structure on its crystallization. The existence in the melt of stably bonded groups of atoms or ions with a definite structure has been considered a basic concept in this regard. It is assumed that this structure can be transformed with a change of melt temperature, and it is suggested that similarity or difference in structure of separate melt and crystalline fragments should play a deciding role in crystallization of a particular species [1–5]. For example, crystallization of metastable phases from melts of aluminum and gallium garnets and A12O3 [1–5] were explained based on such assumptions.
