The experimental data shows that the effect of iron on the characteristics of the structure of the condensates is non-monotonic: the addition of a small amount of impurity atoms to copper results in the situation in which the crystallographic the orientation of the columnar grains remains the same as in pure copper, in the direction <111>, and the density of the twinned boundaries of these crystals greatly increases.
Three distinct generations of datolite crystallization, each with subtle crystallographic and associated mineral characteristics, have been identified by Moroshkin and Frishman (2001): early, late and latest.
