Monoclinic α-KRE(WO4)2 crystals are grown. Their structure is described in two crystallographic settings. The principal refractive indices are determined and the coefficients and characteristic wavelengths are used for calculating refractive indices by the Selmeyer formulas. The data on the anisotropic parametric Raman generation in these crystals under the picosecond pumping are discussed.
