Fracto-emissions accompanying crack propagation are observed in the recent experiments. The energy impulses during and after fracture stimulate the fracto-emissions. Model concerning atomic scale cleavage processes is proposed to formulate a catastrophic fracture theory relevant to these phenomena. A criterion for catastrophic jump of the cleavage potential is applied to representative crystals.
