### How you determine the crystal class and crystal system of a crystal from its symmetry content?

you can determine crystal class and crystal system of a crystal
from its symmetry by 3 criteria of symmetry.1.plane of
symmetry:this divides the crystal into two such that one half of it
is a mirror image to the other,e.g a halite(cube) has 9 plane of
symmetry.(2)axis of symmetry:this is the axis about which the
rotation takes place when a crystal wants to occupy position in
space more than one time in a complete turn.(3).centre of
symmetry:this when the like faces,edges e.t.c are...

###### Asked in Geology

### What are crystal form and cleavage?

Crystals come in different shapes, determined by how the
molecules of compounds from which they are made can be packed
together. For instance a quarts crystal is hexagonal in shape,
while galena and pyrites crystals are cubic. There are six
different crystal shapes or forms determined by the axes and degree
of symmetry of the crystal and the angles at which the axes
intersect.
Subordinate to the overall crystal shapes, many crystalline
substances have within them planes of weakness along which the
crystal may...

### What are basis in a crystal structure of solid?

One of the basis in a crystal structure is classification of
solids; classification on the basis of the symmetry of crystal
structures (geometrical properties) and physical features of
them.
In symmetric, we describe shape and arrangement crystals (s.c,
b.c.c, f.c.c, h.c.p ,etc.) and in physical classification, decribe
physical properties (The scheme is based on the configuration of
the valance electrons. for example covalent crystal, ion crystal,
metallic crystal and etc.)
