Gabriel took the crystals with a nod.
Light snow had begun to fall—tiny crystals hardly visible in the light of the lamp across the street.
Mountain winters were always a surprise to lowlanders and easterners, where the chemistry of moisture played games that produced slush and wet snow, not the sparkling crystals so soft a broom could clear a foot-deep snowfall with a few swishes.
With deadly accuracy, she threw the ball at him, laughing when it bounced off his leather coat and sprayed a mist of white crystals in his face.
It forms monoclinic crystals which are very soluble in water.
They form yellow or bronze-coloured crystals, which decompose on boiling their aqueous solution.
The crystals possess a perfect cleavage parallel to the plane of symmetry and are usually bladed, in habit; they are soft (H= 2), flexible and sectile.
Crystals were first found in Cornwall (at Wheal Jane, near Truro, associated with pyrrhotite) by J.
Boron dissolves in molten aluminium, and on cooling, transparent, almost colourless crystals are obtained, possessing a lustre, hardness and refractivity near that of the diamond.
It is decomposed by water, and with a solution of yellow phosphorus in carbon bisulphide it gives a red powder of composition PBI 2, which sublimes in vacuo at 210° C. to red crystals, and when heated in a current of hydrogen loses its iodine and leaves a residue of boron phosphide PB.
It forms slightly coloured small crystals possessing a strong disagreeable smell, and is rapidly decomposed by water with the formation of boric acid and sulphuretted hydrogen.
Its purpose was to answer factual questions ("Computer, what is the closest planet with dilithium crystals?"), not wisdom questions ("Computer, should we go there?").
The sun knows that you like to see the world covered with beautiful white snow and so he kept back all his brightness, and let the little crystals form in the sky.
White Pond and Walden are great crystals on the surface of the earth, Lakes of Light.
