It was shown in literatures that every density matrix for a spin-j system can be defined in terms of the Fano statistical tensor parameters. On the other hand, this spherical tensor parameters can be uniquely determined by units vectors. In this study, we construct the density matrix for the most general spin-1 system in terms of unit vectors. We also give some cases to show symmetric properties of spherical tensor parameters.
