The Natural History Museum of Denmark, in Copenhagen, has sent me a new and better photo of their Rutile cyclic twin. I suspect it is a 'dirty dimple' and not a hole, unlike the wooden model in the same display case.

See what you think.

I am looking for nice examples of fivelings, either images or references earlier than 1960 (in particular any in the 1800's). Any links very much appreciated.

Although marcasite doesn't make an exact fiveling, there are drawings in Vol. VI of Goldschmidt's Atlas der Krystallformen on Tafel 6 no's. 87, 91-95. I believe the original reports might be available on the web. They are from the 1800's.

What other minerals form fivelings?

Several isometric minerals form fivelings, including diamond, copper, gold, and I think silver.

If grown by, for instance, vapor deposition then every fcc metal can produce fivelings and also icosahedra -- not as naturally formed minerals though. From Goldschmidt's atlas I found naturally occuring As, Diagond, Gold, Copper, Chalcopyrite, Marcasite and silver. Pyrite forms icosahedra only, which is odd. There seem to be many nice images of these, but few to none of fivelings.

N.B., many of the early papers are not on the web, or at least I cannot find them.
