It is well known that opalescence caused by phase separation is diminished by introduction of alumina into sodium borosilicate glasses [1–3], However, in investigations of low-alkali borosilicate glasses containing even small amounts of oxides of the RO type it was found that in a number of cases opalescence of these glasses is intensified by introduction of Al2O3 [4, 5]. It was therefore considered interesting and desirable to investigate phase separation in borosilicate glasses containing both Al2O3 and RO, especially as in most cases both these oxides are actually present.
