Therefore, we have investigated the early and intermediate stages of crystallization ofthree glasses on both sides of the stoichiometric composition through direct observations by transmission electronmicroscopy (TEM)/selected area electron diffraction (SAED) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). In samples heat-treated atTg ¼ 454 °C, two distinct crystalline phases, stable lithium disilicate (LS2) and metastable lithium metasilicate (LS)coexist up to 120 h at 454 °C (crystalline fraction <1 vol.%). For longer treatments (240–600 h) only the stable phase(LS2) was observed. These results suggest that in the early stages, simultaneous homogeneous nucleation of both LS andLS2 takes place. As treatment time and crystallized fraction increase, the relative number of LS crystals decreases.
Therefore, the precipitation of the LS phase does not disturb the nucleation of the stable LS2 phase and thus cannotexplain the failure of CNT in predicting the nucleation rates in this glass.
