As tiny cold water droplets get carried up into the atmosphere, they meet microscopic particles in the air (such as pollen or dust) and begin to freeze into an ice crystal. Water's unique ability to expand upon freezing and hydrogen bonding between the water molecules determine the crystal’s shape, forming a symmetrical and hexagonal prism.
