A snowflake is a single ice crystal which falls through the Earth's atmosphere as snow.
Each flake nucleates around a dust particle (mineral or organic) by attracting cloud water droplets, which freeze in hexagonal crystal form.

Although snowflakes are never perfectly symmetrical, the growth of a snowflake often approximates six-fold radial symmetry, arising from the hexagonal crystalline structure of ice.
