This page, maintained by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, offers a concise index of common crystal lattice structures, including those from minerals and non-minerals. Several different graphical representations, an interactive Java applet of the structure, and useful information about the lattices can be obtained by clicking on images of crystal structures.
