There are four forms, which vary based upon the arrangements of the groups ("P") and ("A"):
- In the "I" variety, clockwise, the order repeats four times: AP-AP-AP-AP.
- In the "III" variety, the fourth is reversed: AP-AP-AP-PA.
- The "II" and "IV" varieties can be created synthetically, but do not appear in nature.
