Warren and Dudas (1989) also examined magnetically separated fly ash particles and found that most of them consisted of three distinct phases: a highly soluble exterior glassy veneer, a crystalline magnetite highly substituted in a variety of metals, and a less soluble aluminosilicate glass interstitial to the magnetite. Gomes et al. (1999) characterised the magnetite present in a Class F coal fly ash and found it to be highly substituted with magnesium, manganese, calcium and silicon. Titanium is also generally present in Australian coal fly ash, as an impurity in kaolin and other clays.

High degree of order within the short range represented by the basic tetrahedral SiO4 building block. When observing the distances between the silica atoms in the centres of linked tetrahedra, however, a range of values is found in the amorphous structure as a result of the distribution in bond angles. The distributions become broader when observing the distances between silicon atoms and the second next closest oxygen and so forth (Shelby, 2005). , 2004), though most are thought to lie within ±10% of 144° (Shelby, 2005).
