A Package for Displaying Crystal Morphology

Volume 7, Issue 1
Winter 1997
Jörg Enderlein, Los Alamos National Laboratory

In mineralogy and crystallography, one would like to display the morphology of a crystal based on the knowledge of its symmetries. This article introduces a package for computing and displaying ideal crystals, given their point symmetry groups, axes systems, and face indices. The package will be useful for anybody interested in mineralogy, crystallography, or simply in the geometrical beauty of crystals.
