Title: Interactive Minerals: 3-D Graphic Displays
Url: http://www.luc.edu/faculty/spavko1/minerals/
Creator: Pavkovic, Steve
Publisher: Loyola University of Chicago
Description: Students of chemistry will find much to enjoy at this site created by Professor Steve Pavkovic. The site contains interactive 3D graphics displays of various crystalline minerals. These colorful and inviting displays can be explored fairly easily, and they are designed to give users a "clear understanding of the relationships between the unit cell and its parts." The first section users should visit is the "Unit Cell Structures of Selected Minerals and Elements". Here visitors can make their way through displays of elements like arsenic and boron, along with other groupings, such as oxides & hydroxides and sulfides. The "Unit Cell Basics" area contains some helpful diagrams of cubic unit cells, hexagonal cells, and various platonic solids.
