== Structure ==IM SEXY AND I KNOW IT ;) Quincy<3 i love u- Grace Boyles

I heard about AgI being used to seed clouds but I don't think that the structure is anything like ice, quote:
"Its use in cloud seeding comes from its resemblance to ice crystals, which is apparent under X-ray crystallography"
I'm very certain the second half is wrong - anyone out there to confirm this?HappyVR 11:26, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

Having looked more at this it seems there may be some truth to the sentence I removed but it needs clarifying significantly.HappyVR 11:52, 14 March 2006 (UTC)

And there's no reference, so I can't check it. —Keenan Pepper 02:20, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Rainmaking Properties Explained[edit]

Could I beg a subject matter expert (or anyone versed on the subject), to add a quick blurb in the main article regarding Silver Iodide's mechanism for 'creating rain'? -- ViaBest 15:12, 16 February 2007 (UTC)

used in ... rainmaking and cloud seeding What kind of rainmaking other than cloud seeding is it used for? Rain dances?--87.162.66.236 18:53, 25 April 2007 (UTC) These kinds of childish articles (distinguishing rainmaking and cloud seeding) illustrate why one should not rely on too much on Wikipedia. --Smokefoot (talk) 20:42, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

I am not sure where to ask this question: it says in this article on Silver Iodide that tons of it are used in 'cloud seeding' every year - which is sprayed into the atmosphere by various methods including planes... BUT then right after that it WARNS: DO NOT come in contact with this chemical - do not breath, do not let it come into contact with skin etc... That seems like a contradiction - if it is sprayed by the TON - are we not being exposed to this ???????? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.47.226.73 (talk) 20:49, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Colour[edit]

Appearance: Yellow, crystalline solid

Probably explainable if one's a chemist. If not, it is just plain confusing. OlliffeΦObscurity 18:32, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
