We report on our optical observations on BCC He-3 crystals in the temperature range of 8-55 mK. With our interferometric technique we were able to identify at least three different types of facets, (1 1 0), (1 0 0), and (2 1 1), at temperatures up to 55 mK. Previously, only the (1 1 0) facet was observed at such high temperatures.
