Phase transitions in LiKSO4 have been visually observed in a diamond-anvil cell up to 16 GPa. The observations confirm a symmetry change at 0·9 GPa and a solidstate crystal to amorphous transition at 12 GPa. The crystal exhibits a memory across the crystalline transitions. Interesting microstructural features were observed in the range of the amorphous phase.
