The presence of phases showing icosahedral point symmetry was reported by Shechtman, Blech, Gratias and Cahn in rapidly quenched alloys of Al---Mn, Al---Fe and Al---Cr, and subsequently many other splat-cooled alloys with the i phase have been reported. In this paper we present the first results of high pressure experiments carried out on Al---Fe and Al---Mn quasi-crystals. The experiments performed at room temperature showed irreversible quasi-crystal-to-crystal transitions in Al---Mn and Al---Fe alloys. The transition pressures are 49 kbar for Al78Mn22, 93 kbar for Al86Mn14, 79 kbar for Al86Fe14, 54 kbar for Al82Fe18 and 108 kbar for Al75Fe25. The high pressure phases are found to be the equilibrium phases.
