New brilliant coherent effects arise for e+e- pair creation by high energy photons in a crystal, when e+ and e- form the neutral bound state (positronium atom moving with relativistic velocity), and for e+ e- pair creation by relativistic heavy particles passing through the crystal, when e- (e+) is captured into the K-shell of the projectile particles.
