Ice XV

Ice XV is a suggested name for a predicted crystalline form of ice thought to be formed by cooling water to around 108-80 K at 1.1 GPa. It would be the proton-ordered form of ice VI, but has yet to be created in experiments.

Ordinary water ice is known as ice Ih, (in the Bridgman nomenclature). Different types of ice, from ice II to ice XIV, have been created in the laboratory at different temperatures and pressures.
