Unit Cell Schematic

This schematic shows the locations of the symmetry elements in the unit cell. The orientation of the axes is such that the x axis is vertical and the y axis is horizontal. All triclinic and monoclinic cells are shown as rectangles, so sometimes you just need to remember that the axes aren't always orthogonal as shown.
