In this paper fractography of high-purity iron cleaved at low temperatures is investigated to clarify fundamental processes without the influence of impurities and inclusions. Factors affecting the initiation and the propagation of cracks are discussed from observations of river patterns and twin traces, and it is pointed out that intersection of a deformation twin with an interface such as other twins, grain boundaries or the surface can play an important role in the initiation and propagation of cracks.
