This web site offers interactive 3-D graphics displays of unit cells for crystalline minerals, created using the program Mage (1).

You are invited to explore these colorful, interactive displays which respond to click-and-drag cursor movements, have on/off components, and can be viewed in stereo. These features allow you to gain a clear understanding of the relationships between the unit cell and its parts. [ more ]
