**TLQS (Twin Lattice Quasi-Symmetry) twinning** is a term employed to indicate twinning where the twin lattice is close to a higher holohedry.
The degree of quasi-symmetry is commonly measured by the twin obliquity, which depends on the perpendicularity of lattice row / lattice plane [*uvw*] / (*hkl*) defining the cell of the twin lattice.
