“Orthohombic. Crystals usually tabular parallel to base; often diamond shaped because of the presence of a short prism. Both macro- and brachydomes usually present, either beveling the corners of the diamond-shaped crystals, or if the prism faces are wanting, beveling the edges of the tavles and forming rectangular prismatic-shaped crystals elongated parallel to either the brachy- or macro-axis.” — Ford, 1912
