7). Dauphine twins are therefore called electrical twins, too. In Japanese twins the optical axes form an angle of 84° 33'. Japanese twins can be composed of either a) a right- and a left-handed quartz, or b) of2 right-handed quartzes, or c) of 2left-handed quartzes. Brazilian and Japanese twins of type a (Fig. 7) are mirror twins. It is impossible to bring the crystallattices of the two individuals to congruency by a rotation which is the reason why they can not be formed by a mechanical or any other extern al influence.

0,720 nm. The ratio of the lattice constant is colao= 0,447 ... 0,453 [Epprecht 1953]. The density (Jvaries in the range of 3,0· 103 to 3,2· 103kg/m 3 and increases with the Fe-content. Tourmaline has a high mechanical strength and, like quartz, is resistant against most acids and alkali. 4. The values were taken from Mason [Mason 1950] and coincide quite weIl with the much earlier measurements done by Riecke and Voigt [Riecke and Voigt 1892]. The signs of the piezoelectric constants were adapted as defined by Cady [Cady 1964].

Sensor elements made from ß-quartz can only be designed for the transverse or the shear effect. The maximum transverse sensitivity is obtained with the orientation XYa45°, resulting in d 12 =-0,93 pC/N. An element of such orientation does not loose its piezoelectric properties near the phase transition from a- to ß-quartz. Until now, no manufacturer seems to have produced a sensor with such an element, although it would offer a quite wide operating temperature range. 3 Tourmaline Tourmaline is, from the chemical point of view, an aluminum-borosilicate.
