Scientists have long worked to understand how crystals grow into complex shapes. Crystals are important in materials from skeletons and shells to soils and semiconductor materials, but much is unknown about how they form. Now, an international team has shown how nature uses different pathways to grow crystals that go beyond the classical, one-atom-at-a-time route.
