• ## Hexagonal crystal family - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexagonal_crystal_system The hexagonal crystal system consists of the 7 point groups that have a single six-fold rotation axis. These 7 point groups have 27 space groups (168 to 194), all of which are assigned to the hexagonal lattice system. Graphite is an example of a crystal that crystallizes in the hexagonal crystal system. Crystal classes Trigonal crystal system

uwaterloo.ca/earth-sciences-museum/resources/.../hexagonal-crystal-system The hexagonal system has four crystallographic axes consisting of three equal horizontal, or equilateral axes at 120 degrees to each other, as well as one vertical axis which is perpendicular to the other three. This vertical axis can be longer or shorter than the horizontal axes. The system has the following forms: Prism Pinacoid Dipyramid Ditrigonal Pyramid Trigonal Prism

www.britannica.com/science/hexagonal-system Hexagonal system, one of the principal categories of structures to which a given crystalline solid can be assigned. Components of crystals in this system are located by reference to four axes—three of equal length set at 120 degrees to one another and a fourth axis perpendicular to the plane of the other three.
• ## What are Crystal Systems and Mineral Habits?

www.gemsociety.org/article/mineral-habits The crystal systems previously discussed represent every variation of four-sided figures with three axes. In the hexagonal system, we have an additional axis, which gives the crystals six sides. Three of these are equal in length and meet at 60 º to each other.
• ## Hexagonal Crystal System I - metafysica.nl

metafysica.nl/hexagonal_1.html The Hexagonal Crystal System is based on four crystallographic axes (although of course any face could be described already by three axes, using four axes is more convenient). The system of crystallographic axes of the Hexagonal Crystal System consists of three equivalent (i.e. interchangeable) horizontal (equatorial) axes of which the positive ...

www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/hexagonal%20system Hexagonal system definition is - a crystal system characterized by three equal lateral axes intersecting at angles of 60 degrees and a vertical axis of variable length at right angles (as in the hexagonal prism).
• ## Crystal system - Wikipedia

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crystal_systems A lattice system is a class of lattices with the same set of lattice point groups, which are subgroups of the arithmetic crystal classes.The 14 Bravais lattices are grouped into seven lattice systems: triclinic, monoclinic, orthorhombic, tetragonal, rhombohedral, hexagonal, and cubic.. In a crystal system, a set of point groups and their corresponding space groups are assigned to a lattice system.

• ## CRYSTAL SYSTEMS AND BRAVAIS LATTICES

www.periodni.com/crystal-systems-and-bravais-lattices.html Hexagonal crystal system is based on four crystallographic axes. Three of the axes (denoted by a 1, a 2, and a 3) are of the same length and lie in the hexagonal (basal) plane at 120° to one another (between the positive ends).A fourth axis (c), longer or shorter than other three, is perpendicular to this plane.Therefore, it is sufficient to give the a and c lattice parameters for the ...
