Images, Video, and Other Media

Movie S1
Movie of ice nucleation on the surface of orthoclase (FSM) at 233 K (first nucleation cycle, the end of the movie corresponds to the image in the figure 2B). The field of view is approximately 500 μm wide.
Movie S2
Movie of oriented ice growth on (001) face of the FS04 specimen at 248 K. The field of view is approximately 500 μm wide.
Movie S3
Movie of co-aligned ice growth on both (001) and (010) faces of the orthoclase (FSM) specimen at 248 K. The field of view is approximately 500 μm wide.
Movie S4
Zoom onto the first nucleation event of the nucleation cycle from the movie S1. The horizontal dimension of the frame is approximately 15 μm.

Additional Data

GROMACS structure file of ice on feldspar
Experimental data set
Zipped folder "experimental_SM.tar.gz" that contains the original experimental data: ice crystal nucleation map with crystal coordinates from eight nucleation cycles, data used for calculation of on-set supersaturation, wireframes of crystal habits, and original image frames for all figures and supplementary figures recorded with the ESEM.
Computational dataset
Zipped folder "computational_SM.tar.gz" that contains all of our main structures as well as files that contain information about the computational settings used in this work.
