In the system Ca3Al2(SiO4)3—Y3Fe2(FeO4)3, a series of solid solutions exists over the range 10–100% Y3Fe2(FeO4)3, Similar to the system spessartite—yttrium-aluminum garnet, this system docs not follow a linear composition vs. lattice constant law. Under the conditions of the experiments, a complete series of solid solutions does not exist in the system Mn3Al2(SiO4)3—Y3Fe2(FeO4)3 although there is some solution at the ends. The system Ca3Al2(SiO4)3—Gd3Fe2(FeO4)3 is similar to that of the Ca3Al2(SiO4)3—Y3Fe2(FeO4)3 system but under similar experimental conditions does not appear to have as wide a range.
