Single crystal spheres of rare-earth gallium-iron garnet crystals (R3Fe5-xGaxO12, where R = Lu, Yb, Er, Ho, Y, Gd, Eu, Sm and (O ≤ x ≤ 5) have been dissolved in acids. It was observed that on dissolution in H3PO4, the combination of faces {100}D and {111}D changed into the combination of faces {hk0}D and {hhl}D (where h > l), while on dissolution in HBr the combination of faces {111}D and {111}D was reduced 0 to {111}D when the size of the rare-earth ion and the Ga concentration were increased.
