Crystals in glass : a hidden beauty

A ""must-have"" for materials engineers, chemists, physicists, and geologists, this is one of the first ""coffee-table"" books in the field of glass science. Containing over fifty beautiful micrographs, the book reflects 35 years of original research by a highly regarded authority in the field. It contains 50 slides culled from tens of thousands of images on glass crystal nucleation, growth, and crystallization. The images represent glass crystallization mechanisms, including internal, surface, homogeneous, heterogeneous, and eutectic, crystal nucleation and growth
