Crystal Libraries

Free structures to go with our software.

The full version of CrystalMaker includes access to a crystal structures library comprising over 800 annotated structure files, with over 300 mineral structures - the major rock-forming minerals - plus organic and inorganic structures of technological importance.

As a bonus, we include additional structures here, grouped into separate libraries with a brief description on the following web pages. These structures are saved in CrystalMaker's powerful binary format, which includes all structural and display settings, bonds, polyhedra and notes - ready for immediate display.

Viewing Crystals

CrystalViewer icon

CrystalMaker binary files can be displayed, manipulated, and printed, using CrystalMaker 9, or our free CrystalViewer 9. You can also simulate powder and single-crystal diffraction patterns for the crystal files in the libraries, using our CrystalDiffract 6 and SingleCrystal 2 programs, respectively.
