Triclinic crystal system

 C O N T E N T S 

In , the triclinic (or anorthic) crystal system is one of the 7 . A crystal system is described by three basis vectors. In the triclinic system, the is described by vectors of unequal length, as in the system. In addition, the angles between these vectors must all be different and may not include 90°.

The triclinic lattice is the least symmetric of the 14 three-dimensional . It has (itself) the minimum symmetry all lattices have: points of inversion at each lattice point and at 7 more points for each lattice point: at the midpoints of the edges and the faces, and at the center points. It is the only lattice type that itself has no mirror planes.

With each only one space group is associated. Pinacoidal is also known as triclinic normal. Pedial is also triclinic hemihedral.

examples include , , , , and , all in triclinic normal ().
