FROM WIKI: "There are, broadly, two possible explanations for the symmetry of snowflakes. First, there could be communication or information transfer between the arms... // " WOW - Communication of Water Chrystals - that is SO cute!! I wonder what they say to us...
....// "The sixfold symmetry happens because of the basic hexagonal crystalline structure from which the snowflake grows. The exact reason for the threefold symmetry of triangular snowflakes is still a mystery  although trigonal symmetry is a subsymmetry of hexagonal...."
