Additional recommended knowledge
A kagome lattice is an arrangement of laths composed of interlaced triangles such that each point where two laths cross has four neighboring points. Although called a lattice, it is more closely related to the trihexagonal tiling than to a mathematical lattice.
Its name derives from the Japanese word kagome, meaning the pattern of holes ("me", literally "eyes") in a basket ("kago").
Some minerals, namely jarosites and herbertsmithite, contain layers with kagome lattice arrangement of atoms in their crystal structure. These minerals display novel physical properties connected with geometrically frustrated magnetism.
