Single crystal spheres of yttrium iron garnet have been dissolved in solvents of H3PO4 and HBr at 140 and 126°C, respectively. The final dissolution form was a tetrahexahedron in H3PO4 and an octahedron in HBr. In the latter case the faces were built up of terraces. The observed dissolution forms could be explained using the theory of Lacmann, Franke and Heimann.
