XCrySDen

XCrySDen is a crystalline and molecular structure visualisation program aiming at display of isosurfaces and contours, which can be superimposed on crystalline structures and interactively rotated and manipulated. It runs on GNU/Linux.

XCrySDen has been also ported to MAC OSX (requires X11) and Windows (requires CYGWIN).

The name of the program stands for Crystalline Structures and Densities and X because it runs under the X-Window environment.
