»The diamond cubic crystal structure is a repeating pattern of 8.

Four sp³ orbitals form a tetrahedron. The angle formed between these bonds is the same. The shape of the orbital is named after the number of the orbitals involved. The name »sp³« means there was one s orbital and three p orbitals that got hybridized.

You could use the modules in this box to build a diamond cubic crystal structure of your own.«
