Zircon vs. Alumina-lime-silica Glass

Zircon belongs to the oxide-based engineering ceramics classification, while alumina-lime-silica glass belongs to the glass and glass-ceramics. There are 4 material properties with values for both materials. Properties with values for just one material (14, in this case) are not shown.

For each property being compared, the top bar is zircon and the bottom bar is alumina-lime-silica glass.
