Overlapping open triangular etch marks of variable size (again rather arrows than triangles) are clearly visible on the rhomb surface.
The Penrose rhomb substitution [16] uses the prototile set R(5) and also involves tiling inflated prototiles with distorted boundaries, but pairs of opposite edges do not share the same distortion.
This method uses as prototiles the set of rhombs with angles that are integer multiples of [pi]/n, and includes various special cases that have already been constructed by hand for low values of n.
I found some 2,055 rhombs of length 4 which were also word squares.
This only provides the setting for a rich red, 5-inch perfectly shaped rhomb of rhodochrosite with a similar but smaller crystal off to its left.
The ordering for dolomite rhombs was found from the intensity ratio of two other dolomite peaks i.
Also, the function of postpendency can promote a subalternation-subcontrariety relationship (Fpq = Cpq & Apq), like the one between the statement "some rhombs are square" and "some rhombs are parallelograms.
These are clusters of sharp, opaque, baby-pink, rhombobedral crystals without matrix or associations: Teodocio Ramos had about 100 fine miniatures with rhombs to 3 cm, while Luis Burillo had three specimens from 9 to 12 cm across showing sharp, stacked rhodochrosite rhombs to 4.
1 with small figures (circles, rhombs and squares) joined by a brace.
Transparent medium- to coarse-crystalline dolomite rhombs with well-developed faces and cleavage surfaces occur in transparent laminae of semitransparent fine-crystalline matrix.
