The Seven Crystal classes 1) Triclinic--general a1, a2, a3 2) Monoclinic--a3 perpendicular to a1 and a2 3) Orthorhombic--a1, a2, a3 all perpendicular to each other 4) Tetragonal--a1, a2, a3 all perpendicular to each other, and a1 = a2 5) Trigonal--a1, a2, a3 all equal, and make equal angles with each other 6) Hexagonal--a1 and a2 equal and at 60 degree angle, a3 perp to both 7) Cubic--a1, a2, a3 all equal and perpendicular The most common lattices, and their abbreviations
