Properties: Hard, brittle, garnet-type crystals. Hardness about equal to that of quartz. mp >1040°. The melt is easily amenable to doping and crystal nucleation by epitaxy. Crystals may be oriented along the simple axes (100), (110), and (111) using the natural (110) face of the crystal.
Melting point: mp >1040°
Use: In microwave tunable filters and limiters.
