Summary: This paper describes a technique for the identification and quantitative determination of crystalline phases in granulated blast-furnace slag by means of incident light microscopy on polished and etched samples. The crystalline phases (including periclase) observed in high-magnesia granulates are reported and their mode of occurrence illustrated.
