“Terminated usually by a combination of a positive and negative rhombohedron, which often are so equally developed as to give the effect of a hexagonal pyramid. Sometimes one rhombohedron predominates or occurs alone. At times the prism faces are wanting, and the combination of the two rhombodendrons gives what appears to be a doubly terminated hexagonal pyramid, known as a quartzoid.” — Ford, 1912
