Name change?Edit

I would like to rename this and other articles so that all of the articles describing the seven crystal systems are named the same way. For example, I would like to rename this article Monoclinic crystal system. That way it woun't be confued with the general gemetric shape. Any objections? O. Prytz 17:37, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

See my response at Talk:Orthorhombic, ditto for here. Vsmith 00:03, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Angles in the diagram are labeled incorrectlyEdit

The angle descriptions in the text (2 90 degree angles) and in the table are correct; for monoclinic, beta != 90. However the diagram shows alpha != 90.

Make the introduction intelligible to ordinary readersEdit

It must be possible to write an intro using a more readable language, even if less precise. For instance:

"The monoclinic crystal system is a way of packing atoms or molecules in a regular lattice, such that the unit cell of repetition has edges of unequal length, and where in each corner, one of the edges meet each of the other two at right angles, while the other two edges meet each other at some oblique angle."

Example "Hilgardite" is listed as Triclinic, rather than Monoclinic in the Hilgardite Wikipedia pageEdit

On the table in the "Crystal Classes" section, there are 3 examples of minerals in the monoclinic class, one of which is Hilgardite. I don't know whether this page is incorrect or if the Hilgardite Wikipedia page is incorrect, but the Hilgardite page lists it as Triclinic. Acorneater (talk) 20:52, 6 June 2021 (UTC)
