Notes

  • Cubic (cub): (also known as Isometric) where the length of all axes are equal and the angle between each axis is 90°.
  • Dodecahedron: a regular dodecahedron has twelve identical pentagonal faces. However, completely regular dodecahedra do not actually exist in crystals - the one shown here is based on 4-sided, irregularly shaped faces.
