Caption: Snowflakes, light micrograph. At upper centre right are two plate snowflakes, surrounded by dendritic snowflakes. 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. Snowflakes typically have hexagonal symmetry, as seen here. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud. Magnification: x20 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
