What favors the needle crystal habit

Is anyone aware of studies done on why some proteins 
will pack to form needles? Is the needle habit a packing involving
the least number of specific interactions (salt bridges, and hydrogen bonds),
and the most non specific-interactions (van der Waals, and dispersion forces) ?

Thanks for any help.
