We report two new magnesium-rich glassy Mg-Ca-Zn alloys of one eutectic (Mg72Ca12Zn16) and another near eutectic (Mg63Ca15Zn22) composition. The glass-forming ability of the alloys is slightly lower than that of the Mg60Ca5Zn35 alloy which has been well explored earlier. The Young's Modulus of the new glassy alloys is exceptionally low (similar to 35 GPa) and much lower than that of the Mg(60)Ca(5)Zn(35)glassy alloy (similar to 50 GPa) indicating possible potential biomedical applications.
