The extent to which pressure and presence of water affect the crystallization temperature of the fluorine end member of the isomorphous fluoborite series was determined by synthesis experiments. The a parameter of synthetic fluoborite varies from 8.793 to 8.869A, as a result of the entry into the crystal structure of small amounts of water, depending on the pressures and temperatures applied.
