The density and heat of crystallization of rapidly quenched Mn14Al86 were measured and found to be 3.287±0.038 g/cm3 and 16.2 cal/g, respectively. Transmission electron microscopy revealed nodules of the icosahedral phase with lattice fringes. No Kikuchi lines were observed in either selected area or convergent beam diffraction.
