Crystal Models - Set Of 3

Purpose

Set of three simple crystal models.
 

Equipment

Three crystal models.

 

Suggestions

The following crystals are modeled here, from left to right: (1) face-centered cubic, such as common salt, where sodium is black and chlorine is white, (2) an apparently indeterminate structure, which can nevertheless be studied for its symmetries, (3) simple cubic.
