Abstract: When the surface of sodalite [Nas(Si6AI606)CI2] crystals was treated with an etching solution, growth of NaCI crystals could be observed. The etchant used is a dilute nitric acid solution. The acid attacks the surface and breaks it down into an Si-AI gel in which the crystals grow rapidly. Optical photography and electron-microprobe images show crystals with steplike patterns and hollow depressions at the centres of crystal faces. Preferential growth and aggregation of crystallites at grain boundaries is distinctly observed.
