    Axial crystals have axial symmetry which keeps invariant straight line with a fixed point. Axial symmetry groups include 27 non-cubic crystallographic point groups and 5 limit groups describing symmetry of textures and liquid crystals. We show that, except for four cases, each axial symmetry belongs to one of five axial types: polar, chiral, pseudopolar (three basic axial types), directional (possessing none of characteristic properties of basic types) or rotational (exhibiting characteristic properties of all basic types). Each basic type can appear in two structurally different variants with the same symmetry. These variants can coexist and form a mesoscopic structure (antiparallel ferroelectric or chiral domain structure, mixture of enantiomers). We examine macroscopic properties of axial types and variants, and experimental accessivity of their characteristic features.
