Abstract Surface microtopographs of the following crystals, both natural and synthetic, grown from pure vapour phase (PV), by chemical vapour transport (CVT), from high temperature solution (HTS) and hydrothermal solution (HS) are compared according to the criteria of (1) whether spirals are circular or polygonal and (2) how wide is the step separation of the spiral; SiC (PV, CVT, both synthetic), hematite (CVT, HTS, natural and synthetic), corundum (CVT, HTS, synthetic), mica minerals (PV, CVT… CONTINUE READING
