The exploitation of the enhancement of positron sources by channeling effects, in particular for Linear Colliders (LC), relies on the long term resistance of the crystal to radiation damage. Such dama ge has been tested on a 0.3 mm thick tungsten monocrystal exposed during 6 months to the 30 Gev incident electron beam of the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC). The crystal was placed in the converter region , orientated in a random direction and received an integrated flux of e- (fluence) of 2 x 10^18 e-/mm^2. The crystal was analyzed before and after irradiation by X and Gamma diffractometry. No damage was observed, the mosaic spread remained unchanged during irradiation (0.4 mrad FWHM). Implications for use of orientated crystal as converter for positron sources of future LCs are discussed.
