—The morphology of the crystalline phases prepared at different cooling rates, temperatures, andcompositions of melts in the ZrO2–Al2O3system is investigated. It is established that both the quenched andslowly crystallized samples containing 35–70 wt % ZrO2have a submicron structure. Outside this concentrationrange, the ingots have a zonal structure: the peripheral region is formed by large baddeleyite crystals (at a ZrO2content higher than 70 wt %) or corundum crystals (at a ZrO2content lower than 30 wt %). This character ofthe crystallization conﬁrms the presence of the phase separation (liquid immiscibility) region in melts of thissystem. A variant is proposed for the phase diagram of the system under investigation.
