Maybe veering slightly off topic, just today there is an article about 15 different types of ice. Read about it
I'd never really thought much about ice, but it appears that water adapts when found in some extreme conditions.
I'm at work now, can't really research this, but I did find this picture (from 1937!) of 9 different types of ice:
I have to get back to work, but I when I can, I want to see if there is a description and reason for the type of ice in the OP.
I would love to 'shave' some ice off of that and put it in my iced tea!
Thanks for the pictures, OP!
