High angle annular dark field scanning transmission electron microscopy has been employed to observe precipitate structures in Al-Zn-Mg and Mg-Zn alloys. $$eta_{1}$$ precipitate structures in Al-Zn-Mg are commonly formed by MgZn$$_2$$ Penrose bricks, but also frequently observed to incorporate Mg$$_6$$Zn$$_7$$ elongated hexagons via two different modes. Tilings of MgZn$$_2$$ and Mg$$_6$$Zn$$_7$$ building blocks in both $$beta'_{1}$$ in Mg-Zn and $$eta_{1}$$ in Al-Zn-Mg alloys, create overall patterns which deviate from the chemical and structural configuration of solely monoclinic Mg$$_4$$Zn$$_7$$ or MgZn$$_2$$ unit cells. Precipitate morphologies were found to be correlated to their internal sub-unit cell arrangements, especially to Mg$$_6$$Zn$$_7$$ elongated hexagons.
