American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- adj. Having a crystalline structure visible only under a microscope.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- Minutely crystalline: said of crystalline rocks of which the constituents are individually so minute that they cannot be distinguished from each other by the naked eye; cryptocrystalline. Many lithologists use microcrystalline and cryptocrystalline as synonymous. Rosenbusch, however, uses the former term to designate that structure of the ground-mass in which the constituent minerals can, with the aid of the microscope, be specifically determined, and the latter for a structure which can be recognized as crystalline, but in which the individual components cannot be specifically identified.
GNU Webster's 1913
- adj. (Crystallog.) Crystalline on a fine, or microscopic, scale; consisting of fine crystals.
