An imaginary line in a crystal, crystal structure, or crystal lattice, about which it may be rotated to an identical configuration. If identity occurs once during a complete rotation of 360 degrees , the axis is a monad, twice a diad, thrice a triad, four times a tetrad, or six times a hexad. Syn: symmetry axis
