In most alloy systems, components are only partially miscible in the solid state. In other words, solid solution only exist over a limited range of compositions and temperatures.

Between these solubility limits, the solid alloy exists as two separate phases.

Opposite is the equilibrium phase diagram for Silver-Copper.
