Expert Answer:

Whether a crystalline solid is anisotropic, or isotropic, depends on the way the atoms in the crystal are arranged. If the spacing and arrangement of the atoms in a crystal appears the same in each of the 3 planes (X, Y, and Z), the crystal is isotropic.

Plain table salt (sodium chloride) and FeS2, iron pyrite which has a lattice structure called "cubic", are examples of an isotropic crystal.
