We review and discuss our recent results on faceting and growth kinetics of He-3 crystals imaged with a Fabry-Perot multiple-beam interferometer at our lowest temperature of 0.55 mK. More than ten different types of facets were identified on the growing crystals and the growth rates of the individual facets were measured. Some further possible experiments are also suggested.
