Cover illustration: Any crystallographic sublattice can be described as the intersection of a unique set of sublattices each of index a power of a distinct prime. Here a twodimensional sublattice (shown as green spheres) of index 12 in the basic lattice (mesh) is formed by the intersection of two specific sublattices with primepower indices 2^{2} (yellow and green) and 3 (blue and green).

GrimmerSynopsis: In quartz aggregates formed by coalescence of preformed crystals in the magma or in hydrothermal solution, monoperiodic twins are common and not restricted to the Zinnwald orientation. For certain values of the axial ratio c/a, diperiodic coincidence in the contact plane will appear, which may be related to the frequency of occurrence of various orientations in low and highquartz.
