The existence of liquid-liquid miscibility gap in ferric ferrous oxide-silica system has been reported, however, the phase separation phenomena and the derived morphology of the phase separated glasses are uncertain. In this study, the melt-quenched samples of 5 Fe3O4-95 SiO2 and 15 Fe3O4-85 SiO2 (mol%) were prepared by melting at 2300°C or 2200°C (expected to be above miscibility gap), and subsequently at 1800°C or 1750°C (in immiscible region) by use of infrared image furnace and quenching at the rate of ≈ 102 K/sec. The glassy materials exhibited phase separation having discrete spherical particles or interconnected structure due to the composition, melting temperature and time. Also, the segregation of Fe component occurred during melting, which was caused by the difference of specific gravity of components in the melt.
