Abstract : It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide an acceleration resistant crystal configuration which is acceleration resistant along all directions. It is another object of the present invention to provide an acceleration resistant crystal configuration which is rugged and is highly resistant to breakage. In brief, these and other objects of the invention are achieved by having two crystals which are electrically coupled or mechanically coupled, or both electrically and mechanically coupled together. At least two axes of one crystal are disposed in anti-parallel relationship with the corresponding axes of the other crystal.
