How do you say two things seem to fit completely right, they are virtually a carbon copy of each other, made to match?

1. in agreement; corresponding; harmonious
2. Geom. of figures, having identical shape and size
3. Math. in congruence: congruent numbers
Origin: ME < L congruens, prp. of congruere, to come together, correspond, agree < com-, with + *gruere, ruere, to fall: see ruin

There seem to be two different concepts here:|
'to fit completely right', and 'made to match' do not imply that two things are congruent, or even similar. Male and female, yin and yang, nut and bolt are examples of this idea.
'Carbon copies' are something quite different, and although identical or congruent would hardly ever fit together.
