(b) Three dimensions.

Lattice point group[C_{i} \equiv \bar{1}][C_{2h} \equiv 2/m][D_{2h} \equiv mmm][D_{4h} \equiv 4/mmm][D_{3d} \equiv \bar{3}m][D_{6h} \equiv 6/mmm][O_{h} \equiv m\bar{3}m]
Crystal family a m o t h c
anorthic (triclinic) monoclinic orthorhombic tetragonal hexagonal cubic
The symbols for crystal families were adopted by the International Union of Crystallography in 1985; cf. de Wolff et al. (1985[link]).
