Summary

It is not the purpose of this chapter to present a comprehensive overview of crystallography and crystal chemistry. Excellent discussions of those topics can be found in the classic Crystallography and Crystal Chemistry: An Introduction by F. D. Bloss (1971) as well as in several more recent texts including those by Klein and Dutrow (2007) and Nesse (2012). Here we cover only the most salient points about crystallography to facilitate understanding of topics and terms presented elsewhere in this book without explanation.
