Liquid to solid. Most elements do this, but at different temperatures.

Solids tend to form along crystalline planes.

To make amorphous materials, particularly in metals, usually requires rapid solidification. Metal oxides would more readily form amorphous compounds, particularly where different cation species are involved.
