A rhombus is a polygon or a parallelogram which consists of four equal or congruent sides. Thus it is a quadrangular shape having its four sides equivalent and its contrary lines similar, with two opposite angles acute and two obtuse. More colloquially it may be explained as a diamond or lozenge shape. Rhombus does not particularly have right angles. So, all squares are rhombi, but all rhombi are not squares. Many claim that a square is not a rhombus but it also has equal supporters who believe that square is a special case of rhombus.

A rhombus often looks like a square that is being pushed over. The only difference in a square and rhombus are the right angles. The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular in nature. The adjacent angles of a rhombus are supplementary. A rhombus is a special case of a parallelogram.

A rhombus is a parallelogram with four equal sides. A parallelogram is a four-sided plane with opposite sides as parallel. One can also call the rhombus an equilateral quadrangle. In fact, if any angle of the rhombus is a right angle (measuring 90 degrees), then it follows that all the other angles are also right angles. Such a construction is called the square.

In a rhombus, the opposite sides are always parallel. A rhombus is also a special kind of kite, quadrilateral with two pairs of equal and adjacent sides. The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular to each other. By joining the midpoints of each side, a rectangle is made. All adjacent angles of a rhombus are supplementary (totalling to 180 degrees).
