Axial Ratios


When the crystallographic axes have been defined, the axial ratios are  calculated from the crystallographic parameters as follows:

Function AxialRatios(A, B, C, labela, labelb, labelc)
' Calculates the axial ratios from unit cell dimensions.
' A:B:C B=1  (A=A/B)  (C=C/B)
' A:B   A=1  (B=B/A)
' From Mason, 1963
