The latest J. Mol. Graph. (12.3 (1994)) has an article about a Mac molecular
graphics program called NanoVision by William Light & Bruce Paul Gaber:
Dr. Gaber, Center for Bio/Molecular Science & Engineering, Code 6090,
Naval Research Lab., Washington, DC 20375-5000.

The acknowledgements say that there is a `significantly enhanced version'
commercially released by the Am. Chem. Soc.

An alternative commercial offering is available from Oxford Molecular. I
believe this is relatively cheap for academics.
