We present the results of our recent observations on He-3 crystals grown from the superfluid phase at 0.55 mK. The crystal images were obtained with a low-temperature multiple-beam interferometer. The angles between the crystal facets were measured by employing a phase-shift technique and true 3D shapes of the crystals were reconstructed on the basis of the obtained information. Three different types of facets (110), (100) and (211) were clearly visible in these experiments.
