Phase transitions in tridymite were examined at pressures up to about 30 kbar by X-ray single-crystal and optical methods, using a hydrothermally synthesized monoclinic crystal of MC type tridymite and a natural crystal (from Kumamoto, Japan) of orthorhombic symmetry tentatively named PO-5 type. In MC type tridymite, a reversible pressure-induced phase… (More)
