Frequency of Quartz Twins Mineralogical Society of America

The frequency of twin types and the handedness were determined for 1 179 crystals from six localities by the use of etch figures developed with hydrofluoric acid It is shown that twinned quartz crystals are much more common than untwinned and that the frequencies of twin types and the ratios between twin types vary from locality to locality
