It has been hypothesized for a long time that the shape of a tabular crystal depends upon whether there are an even or odd number of twin planes or on the location of twin planes relative to the tabular faces. Transmission electron microscopy on cryo-sections of a pair of high-aspect-ratio silver halide tabular emulsions reveals that the suspected correlations do not exist. The explanation based on the recently proposed cubo-octahedral model needs further consideration now.
