Description:Spodumene converts to beta phase
Type:State Change


Undergoes an irreversible phase transition to yield beta-spodumene. This is accompanied by an expansion of ~30% and a decrease in specific gravity from 3.2 to 2.4. After conversion to its beta form at spodumene enters a stage of great thermal stability.
