Integral reflection conditions for centred cells (lattices)

Reflection conditionCentring type of cellCentring symbol
None Primitive [\bigg\{] P
    R (rhombohedral axes)
[h + k = 2n] C-face centred   C
[k + l = 2n] A-face centred   A
[h + l = 2n] B-face centred   B
[h + k + l = 2n] Body centred   I
[h + k, h + l] and All-face centred   F
[k + l = 2n] or:      
[h, k, l] all odd or all even (`unmixed')      
[{-h + k + l = 3n}] Rhombohedrally centred, obverse setting (standard) [\!\!\left.{\matrix{{}\cr{}\cr{}\cr{}\cr{}\cr{}}}\right\}] R (hexagonal axes)
[h - k + l = 3n] Rhombohedrally centred, reverse setting  
[h - k = 3n] Hexagonally centred   H
