Animation flies through the mineral structure of analcime, a mineral with ionic to superionic conductivity. Structure is represented by a ball (showing atoms) and stick (showing bonds) model. The beginning view is a “surface cell” perpendicular to the channel axis looking down <111> to view the pseudo-trigonal representation. Channel axes is 273 Angstroms wide. First image is about 23 times the channel width or 1288 unit cells. Courtesy of David Palmer, CrystalMaker.
