Parallel hexagonal prisms of cancrinite (CAN) with channels perpendicular to the substrate surface were obtained by heteroepitaxial growth on millimeter-sized sodalite (SOD) single crystals. The experiment was planned on the basis of a model in which the ABABAB stacking sequences along the cancrinite [0001] direction were connected to the ABCABC sequence along the sodalite (111) direction (see schematic diagram).
