This paper presents some crystalline structures which can be taken as the approximants of the corresponding metallic glassy phases. Such phases have a clustered structure and preferably (but not strictly necessarily) a large unit cell. Peak intensities of their radial distribution functions (RDFs) must be integrated at a step of about 0.01 nm in order to obtain RDFs similar to those of the corresponding glassy alloys owing to a degree of disorder related to the corresponding glassy structures.
