Caption: Double dendritic snowflake. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form in calm air with temperatures near the freezing point of water. The exact shape of a snowflake depends on local climatic conditions. Double snowflakes have a 12-fold symmetry and are rare. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud.
