The attention is called to a new effect, namely that a crystal can rotate under the influence of a temperature gradient. For example, if a potential difference is produced on the ends of a long rod with thermally insulated lateral surface, then the rod will acquire an angular momentum M directed along its axis and proportional to the resultant heat flux q.
