20 fig_06_27 Orientation & Intercepts of Crystal Faces, Cleavages & Mirror Planes Intercepts at Integral Values of Unit Cell Edges Forms Correspond To Faces, Edges& Corners of Unit Cell

21 fig_06_28 Orthorhombic Crystal with 2 Pyramidal Forms Olivine 2/m2/m2/m (Similar forms in Scheelite 4m CaWO4)

22 Miller Indices Are integers derived from the intercepts on the a, b, & c axes Intercepts are expressed in terms of logical unit cell edge dimensions (the fundamental translation unit in the lattice) If a = 10.4 Å, then an intercept at 5.2 Å on the a axis is ½ Fractions are cleared by multiplying by a common denominator e.g. a plane cutting at [⅓ ⅔ 1/ ∞ ] X 3 = (1 2 0)

23 fig_06_29 Isometric Lattice, Intercepts & Miller Indices What would be the difference between crystals which had Cleavages or other planes along (100) versus (400)?

24 fig_06_30 Miller Indices for Positive & Negative Axes This Crystal like Diamond, Fluorite or Spinel has all Faces of the “form” (111)

25 A Crystal Form A Crystal Form is a group of Like crystal faces All faces of a given form have the same relationship to the symmetry of the crystal In Isometric Crystals the general form (100) includes: (010) (001) (-100) (0-10) and (00-1) through the 4-fold, 3-fold, 2-fold axes and Mirror Planes These faces will all tilt or intersect at 90° Triclinic forms: (100) (010) & (001) all have different pitches; so they do not belong to a single common form For 2 & 2/m Monoclinic forms (101) = (-10-1) ≠ (-101)

26 fig_06_31 Hexagonal 4-digit Miller-Bravais Indices a 1 a 2 a 3 c 1 Form : Prismatic (1010) (1100) (0110) (1010) (1100) (0110) 1 Form : Pyramidal (1121) (2111) (1211) (1121) (2111) (1211)

27 fig_06_32 Crystal Zones & Zone Axes Zone Axis [100] Zone : r’ c r b Zone Axis [001] Zone : m’ a m b Which Forms are : a)Prismatic b)Pyramidal? What is the General form Of the miller Index for : a)m b)r’ (hkl) = a single face [hkl] = a form or pole

28 fig_06_33 Conventional Lettering of Forms General Miller Indices For each form (hkl)? What symmetry makes p=p, m=m ?

29 fig_06_34 The (111) Form in 1 & 4/m 3 2/m Triclinic : Inversion Center Makes only (111) & (111) Isometric : Generates full Octahedron (111)
