Title : Zn-Mg-Ho icosahedral crystal

Description : CORE-Materials posted a photo: This photograph shows a single-grain icosahedral Ho-Mg-Zn quasicrystal grown from the ternary melt: by using the self-flux method (excess Mg), and slowly cooling from 700°C to 480°C. The R-Mg-Zn family is the first rare-earth containing quasicrystal structure, which allows the study of localized magnetic moments in a quasiperiodic environment. Shown over a mm scale, the edges are 2.2 mm long. Courtesy of Paul Canfield, Ames Laboratory, US Department of Energy.
