High magnetic field is well known to have the function of crystal orientation, which is largely influenced by crystal size and shape to some extent. For crystals with large rod shape, the gravity force functions and affects the crystal orientation, In our experiment, different results were got when a high magnetic field was applied perpendicular and parallel to the gravity force. In this paper, the effect of the gravity force for crystal orientation under the high magnetic field is summarized and compared with the experiment result.
