Crystal Structure

example of crystal structure

 

 

Crystal structure refers to a unique arrangement of atoms within a crystalline liquid or solid which are held together in an ordered, three dimensional arrangement. This highly ordered structure occurs specifically because of the intrinsic nature of its constituents to form symmetrical patterns.

A crystalline structure is the highest level of order that can exist within a crystal and serves as a tool of identification because it's completely unique and specific to each mineral variety.
