A Green Itaumipedean Snowflake


A Green Snowflake

On Itaumiped, my imaginary planet (see previous post, as well as a few others on this blog), the snow is not crystals of dihydrogen monoxide, but a different chemical — one that shows both 4-fold and 5-fold, but not 6-fold, symmetry.

This may change in the future, however. That’s one of the advantages of having your own imaginary planet.
