GY 302: Crystallography and Mineralogy (2010) Lab Assignment 3: Monoclinic and Triclinic Crystallography Your Task: One last time. This is the last exercise examining elements of symmetry in crystals, point groups and stereo projections. In this lab, we will focus on the least symmetrical crystal systems; triclinic and monoclinic. Select 2 wooden crystal models from each of these 2 groups* and answer the following questions: 1) What is it's highest rotational symmetry? 2) How many mirror planes does it have? 3) How many 2 fold, 3 fold, 4 fold or 6 fold rotational axes does it have? 4) Does it have any rotoinversion axes? (2-fold and higher) 5) Does it have a center of inversion? 6) What is its point group (this will be easier than last week) 7) Draw a stick diagram for each of the models and, 8) Draw an approximate stereonet projection for each of the models In total, I expect 4 answer sheets from you (2 triclinic minerals; 2 monoclinic minerals by the due date).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
