Caption: Snowflakes. False-colour computer-enhanced image of several snowflakes, taken from resin casts. Snow crystals exhibit a general six-fold symmetry. Each crystal is unique, as it represents an imperfect state of crystal growth (a perfect snowflake would be a regular hexagon). Many individual crystals may clump together during their descent from clouds to form the familiar snowflakes.
