Beryllium oxide crystalsRef: 80014674a
Beryllium oxide crystals. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the fractured surface of beryllium oxide (BeO) ceramic. Beryllium oxide (or "beryllia") is obtained by heating beryllium compounds in excess oxygen. It is mainly used as a ceramic as it has excellent corrosion resistance and good mechanical strength.
