Ternary compound crystals of (Cr, Fe)5Si3 were obtained on a quartz substrate by the in situ CVD process using in situ reaction of the stainless steel 410 powder, Si2Cl6 and hydrogen, and its crystal morphology was examined in some detail. Crystals with various interesting morphologies, such as spiral, conical, rose-like, seaweed-like, globefish-like, etc., were obtained. The most commonly observed growth habits of the crystals were spiral, conical and seaweed-like crystals.
