Why ice is a crystalline compound?


Water molecules are arranged in cage like structure orderly array resulting in a crystalline structure. Crystalline compounds are made up of particles or molecules that are organized in a specific order, such as ice particles or water molecules, resulting in an ordered structure known as a crystalline compound.

What is crystallization?

Crystallization can be defined as the solidification of a liquid substance into a highly structured solid whose atoms or molecules are placed in a well-defined three-dimensional crystal lattice. The smallest individual part of a crystal is called a unit cell. The crystal is made up of millions of such unit cells.

Examples of crystallization

Some common examples of crystallizations are

  • The deposition of gemstone crystals
  • The crystallization of water to form ice cubes and snow.
