To an eye viewers eye snowflakes can look very much alike.
But back in 1951, the International Commission on Snow and Ice divided ice crystals into seven basic shapes, ranging from “stellar crystals” to “irregular forms.”
More recent schemes have subdivided those categories into 35, 41, or even 80 distinct types.
