Abstract : An acceleration resistant crystal features two crystals mounted together with at least two axes of each crystal being in antiparallel relationship with respect to corresponding axes of the other crystals. The two crystals can be chiral pairs and thus have three corresponding axes in antiparallel relationship for acceleration resistance in any arbitrary direction with respect to the crystal axes.
