We report a crystallization technique to make single crystals with homochiral crystallographic domain in CsCuCl3. By adapting crystallization technique with stirring, we succeeded in obtaining the mm-ordered enantiopure single crystals. The samples obtained without the stirring crystallization technique had zigzag shape, suggesting many crystalline nuclei combined during the crystallization process. The samples done with the stirring crystallization technique formed quart-crystal-like shape, suggesting only one crystalline nucleus grew. Absolute structure analysis using X-ray diffraction showed that the samples grown only by our technique had a homochiral crystalline domain.
