Surfaces of optically flawless and untwinned quartz single crystals, both natural and synthetic, were dissolved both at room temperature and at high temperatures in autoclaves using appropriate etchants. The features that develop have been optically studied, and x-ray transmission projection topographs of some of the specimens from the same natural quartz were also taken and studied. A model has been proposed to explain the anomalies detected earlier by other workers regarding the nature of line defects found in as-grown synthetic quartz, and the absence of lateral strain in the polygonised microcracked layer of the specimens of the present series of experiments. © 1980 Indian Academy of Sciences.
