<div>is diamond anisitropic? i am getting confused ,it's constituting particles are carbon atoms so it can't show anisotropy but on other hand it is crystalline so it must be anisotropic? help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</div>

Expert Answer
Diamond is crystalline in nature.    
Hence, the structure of the diamond is not uniform in all direction.
It has different and inconsistent chemical bonding. 
The properties of a material vary with different directions i.e. they are dependent on direction.
This type of behaviour is called anisotropy.
Anisotropy affect the polarization direction of the light.
