It is established that granular glass can be obtained as an intermediate product for foam glass crystal materials based on common silica component (marshallite, diatomite, opoka) at temperatures not exceeding 900°C. It is shown that the use of granular glass with glass phase present in amounts greater than 80 wt.% makes it possible to obtain foam crystal glass materials with density up to 250 g/cm 3.
