    From the equations we know that it is axially symmetric since n = (-1 + 1)/2 = 0 . Visually we can also see that it is axially symmetric around the z-axis since we can see that the electric field gradient will behave the same in the x and y-direction: the gradient is the same in all directions in the xy-plane.
