Split Personality

A snowflake split in two at the center, growing competing branches. Shining with prismatic colour and somewhere between transparent and reflective, this snowflake is a personal favourite.

The “split” design is likely caused by two connected plates each growing dominantly on opposite sides and competing in the middle. This creates a unique and somewhat unpredictable structure that I have only seen a handful of times.
