|Name:||Magnesiosadanagite was defined by Shimazaki et.al(1984) as an Al rich amphibole with K>Na and Mg>Fe2+. In the 1997 amphibole nomenclature ( Leake et. al) magnesiosadanagaite was redefined with Na>K, so that the mineral originally described as magnesiosadanagaite became potassic-magnesiosadanagaite. |
Magnesiosadanagaite in accordance with the 1997 nomenclature was identified and published by Banno et al. (2004).
In the 2012 amphibole nomenclature, sadanagaite was redefined to be the Na, Mg and Al dominant member of the group, thus obsoleting the name magnesiosadanagaite. The magnesiosadanagaite of Banno et. al (2004) is from 2012 named sadanagite.
