What is the difference between ice and snow?

It takes water, cold and a bit of dust for snow.

In the beginning is the water. On earth, water is found in a solid state as ice, in a liquid state as water and in a gaseous state as water vapor. It has the chemical formula H2O. First and foremost, ice is frozen water. If you cool water to below 0 degrees Celsius, it becomes solid and ice crystals are formed that are always hexagonal. These can be prisms, rods, plates or needles. They are colorless and transparent. Snow forms in the clouds. For snow to appear, the freezing process must take place in the clouds. It needs cold temperatures and the air has to be very humid. It also needs dust particles that enable crystallization. The finest water droplets are then deposited on the dust particles and freeze there to form hexagonal crystals. Due to the high humidity, the crystals grow preferentially at the corners and edges and get bigger and bigger. Depending on the temperature and humidity, platelets or prisms form at low temperatures, and beautiful stars at higher temperatures. And when are there snowflakes? The various snow crystals are whirled around in the clouds for quite a while. They collide with other crystals, attach to each other and grow into a snowflake. When these are big and heavy enough and it is cold enough on earth, they fall from the sky.

Every snowflake is unique. There are never two that look exactly alike. This is due to the fact that the different types of crystal are constantly being combined with each other and so form differently composed snowflakes again and again. They are all already!
