Structural defects in specimens of densely sintered glass ceramics of β-spodumene composition are analyzed and the relation between the defect size and mechanical strength of the material is considered. The failure of specimens is initiated by surface microcracks produced by mechanical grinding; the role of microstructure inhomogeneities in the degradation of strength properties is emphasized.
