A seedless process has been developed to produce high-purity Zn single crystals by the method of vertical di-rected crystallization from a melt. The output of a single crystal structure is from 60 to 80%. Crystals with different growth directions were obtained: [1015] and [0002]. The deviation angles of the growth direction plane relative to the normal to the axis of the sample are 0.5...6°. Microhardness, crystalline perfection of single crystals and micro-structure have been determined. The
