Composed of crystals
Solid material composed of regularly repeating atoms, ions, or molecules that form defined patterns or lattice structures
The texture of groups or masses of minerals is said to be crystalline when distinct crystal faces are present Galena is an example of a crystalline mineral Crystalline texture is contrasted with granular texture

Imperfectly crystallized; as, granite is only crystalline, while quartz crystal is perfectly crystallized
It is the structure of polymer where the molecules are arranged in a very regular repeating lattice structure

Fig
A crystalline substance is in the form of crystals or contains crystals. Diamond is the crystalline form of the element carbon
A solid with a repeating three-dimensional unit cell
consisting of or containing or of the nature of crystals; "granite is crystalline" transmitting light; able to be seen through with clarity; "the cold crystalline water of melted snow"; "crystal clear skies"; "could see the sand on the bottom of the limpid pool"; "lucid air"; "a pellucid brook"; "transparent cristal" distinctly or sharply outlined; "crystalline sharpness of outline"- John Buchan
Materials that behave as if they are made of regular crystals
the state of a solid material characterized by a periodic and repeating three-dimensional arrays of atoms, ions, or molecules
Rock types made up of crystals or crystal fragments, such as metamorphic rocks that recrystallized in high temperature or pressure environments, or igneous rocks that formed from cooling of a melt
Crystalline means clear or bright. a huge plain dotted with crystalline lakes
It is said of a perfectly limpid white wine
Having regular molecular structure; contrasted with amorphous
Has a tendancy to form crystals such as salt
distinctly or sharply outlined; "crystalline sharpness of outline"- John Buchan
Resembling crystal; pure; transparent; pellucid
{s} made of crystal, crystal-like, opaque
crystalline lens
The lens of an eye
crystalline rock
Any rock composed entirely of crystallized minerals without glassy matter (matter without visible crystals). Intrusive igneous rocks (see intrusive rock) are nearly always crystalline; extrusive igneous rocks (see extrusive rock) may be partly to entirely glassy. Metamorphic rocks are also always completely crystalline and are termed crystalline schists or gneisses. Sedimentary rocks can also be crystalline, such as crystalline limestones that precipitate directly from solution; the term is not generally applied to clastic sediments (made of fragments of preexisting rock), even though they are formed largely from the accumulation of crystalline materials
crystallin
A globulin found in the lens of the eye
crystallinity
The degree to which a material (e.g. a polymer or a rock) is crystalline
crystallinity
The condition of being crystalline
crystallinity
The quality of having a molecular structure in which the atoms are arranged in an orderly, three dimensional pattern
crystallinity
The quality of having a molecular structure with atoms arranged in an orderly, three-dimensional pattern
crystallinity
Crystallinity refers to the crystal structure of the starch of a plant
crystallinity
Ordered repeated structures (crystals) encountered in polymers below a certain temperature Most polymers are semi-crystalline containing both crystalline and amorphous regions (see also GLASS TRANSITION and MELTING POINT)
crystallinity
for polymers, the state wherein a periodic and repeating atomic arrangement is achieved by molecular chain alignment
crystallinity
A state of molecular structure in some resins attributed to the existence of solid crystals with a definite geometric form, Such structures are characterized by uniformity and compactness
crystallinity
a molecular structure resulting from the formation of solid crystals with a definite geometric pattern
crystallinity
The presence of three-dimensional order on the level of atomic dimensions
crystallinity
The presence of three-dimensional order on the level of atomic dimensions In polymers, the range of order may be as small as about 2 nm in one (or more) crystallographic direction(s) and is usually below 50 nm in at least one direction Polymer crystals frequently do not display the perfection that is usual for low-molecular mass substances Polymer crystals that can be manipulated individually are often called polymer single crystals Pure and Appl chem, 1989, 61, 769 IUPAC Macromolecular Nomenclature
