KIND OF OXYGEN BOND AFFECTS PHYSICAL STRUCTURE<br />
(Variations Available).<br />
Demonstrated By Quartz Crystal & Dry Ice<br />
Because of its simple molecular double bond, CO2 is a gas existing only as a volatile molecular solid at 78C or below.   SiO2  is a giant covalent structure, with strong bonds in 3 dimensions, which make it a hard, high melting-point solid like quartz.
