spiral.noun-and.adjective
A circling around a point or centre in curves that constantly increase in size; coiled or coiling in one plane, or constantly changing planes as the thread of a screw. 

The Archimedes spiral named after he who first described it, is a spiral where each successive whorl is increased by-an amount-the same width as the one before; like a spider's web.

The equiangular spiral-(all lines drawn from the center of the spiral intersect with outer walls at identical angles) is the only mathematical curve that retains the same shape while growing only at one end. These type of spirals occur in animals and plants which grow having each identically shaped segment of proportionately (percentage) increasing size. An equiangular spiral forms when a growing structure is built of components identical in shape, which increase in size by equal steps, a most orderly way to arrange these components making a whole.
   Spirals are different from helixes.
