What are Crystallographic Systems?

Depending upon the shape of the unit cells, the grouping of the crystals is done in seven systems known as crystallographic systems.

Type

Lattice Constants Example
Cubic a=b=c Ag, Li, Nacl
Orthorhombic a!=b!=c HgCl2
Monoclinic a!=b!=c KClO3
Triclinic a!=b!=c K2Cr2O7
Hexagonal a=b!=c Quartz, Zn
Rhombohedral a=b=c Caco3
Tetragonal a=b!=c White tin
