Ultrafast synchrotron microtomography has been used to study in situ and in real time the initial stages of silicate glass melt formation from crystalline granular raw materials. Significant and unexpected rearrangements of grains occur below the nominal eutectic temperature, and several drastically different solid‐state reactions are observed to take place at different types of intergranular contacts. These reactions have a profound influence on the formation and composition of the liquids produced, and control the formation of heterogeneities.
