Square things are things with four equal length sides and four right angles. There are also many form factors that include a square such as cubes that are bounded by six square faces. Squares are rare in nature but do appear as crystalline structures such as crystal pyrite, salt and sugar. They are also a somewhat common shape for human designed items as they are symmetrical and have several useful applications. For example, square boxes are an efficient shape for boxing round things. The following are illustrative examples of square things.
