    How to use "Needlelike" in context?


    In scientific literature, crystals are often described by their shape and geometric features. However, sometimes the crystal's structure is so unusual, so different from any other known crystal form, that scientists have given the crystal a name: needlelike crystals.

    Needlelike crystals are so named because of their cylindrical shape and their sharp, needle-like geometric features. When viewed under a microscope, these crystals appear as long, thin filaments, with a uniform cross-section. The filaments are unable to form a regular crystal lattice, due to the helical twist of their molecules.
