Transparent glass was prepared from nominal alkali pyroxene (Na2 Mg Si2O6) composition. Incorporation of Cr2O3 in alkali pyroxene composition in two % (0.5 and 1.0) increases the crystallization temperature. High cristobalite was developed alone in all glass samples heat-treated at 800°C. The microstructure shows nanometer crystals of high cristobalite which spread in glassy matrix. The densities, hardness and coefficient of thermal expansion were between 2.49 and 2.53 g/cm3, 505 and 611 kg/mm2doi:10.21203/rs.3.rs-299408/v1 fatcat:wtdcrb5w5fa5xjikshmphps2ii
