Sodium Chloride Crystals Containing Precipitated Suzuki Phases With One Of Several Divalent Cations Have Been Cleaved And Cleavage Ledges Delineated By Gold Decoration. The Ledges Are Deduced To Be Associated With Partial Interface Dislocations On The Precipitates. Ledge Spacings Correlate Well With The Expected Dislocation spacing.
