Hexagonal crystal system
Additional recommended knowledge
In crystallography, the hexagonal crystal system is one of the 7 lattice point groups (see Hexagonal lattice). It has the same symmetry as a right prism with a hexagonal base. There is only one hexagonal Bravais lattice, which has six atoms per unit cell.
The point groups (crystal classes) that fall under this crystal system are listed below, followed by their representations in Hermann-Mauguin or international notation and Schoenflies notation, and mineral examples, if they exist.
