Graphene, the new wondrous material, is a perfect example of a two-dimensional hexagonal crystal unlike any other. Here we exhibit some of the characteristic directional features associated with hexagonal cells, emphasising the sixfold symmetry. We depict the X-ray, vibrational and electronic band structures to be expected in such systems via 2 dimensional contour plots.
