A marcasite-like arrangement of atoms is common to a rather large number of crystals. It is now desirable to organize the many data in this field for crystallographic purposes:

  • by adopting a common orientation for these crystals based upon their structural similarity, and

  • by providing a classification of these crystals based upon their structural differences.

These matters are treated in the present paper. It is also desirable to outline the fields within which the several structures may exist and the relations between these structures and the structures of neighboring fields. This crystallo-chemical discussion is reserved for a paper to appear shortly.
