Best Answer

The glaciated cloud (i.e. cloud contains ice crystals, not just super cooled liquid) appears filmy, or diffuse, with indistinct cloud edges. Non glaciated occurs more during the storm development stage where towering cumulus full of water droplets look very crisp at the edges as they mushroom out from the updraft.
