Caption: This snowflake features relatively stable growth and symmetry. The center began as a sectored plate which takes on a flower-like appearance in this specimen. Photographed with reflected light on a black woollen surface. Specimen measures 3.9mm in diameter along the longest branches. If reproduced at 10cm, the image would have a magnification factor of roughly 26x. This image is a composite, adding the in-focus areas of multiple frames to achieve complete focus across the entire crystal.
