There aren’t many things on this earth that bring out our inner child the way a snowfall does. It can be a truly magical experience. When we say “snowflake,” we are actually referring to a “snow crystal”.  A snow crystal is a singular crystal of ice. Snowflake is the more general term that is technically an individual snow crystal, but it can also define almost anything that falls from winter clouds. A snow crystal is born when a speck of dust or pollen is caught by water vapor high in the atmosphere. The speck freezes into a tiny crystal of ice formed by water molecules in a precise hexagonal prism.
