The taramite group minerals are sodium-calcium amphiboles defined with A(Na+K+2Ca)> 0.5 apfu and 1.5 apfu < C(Al+Fe3++2Ti).

Ferri-taramite is defined with

A position: Na dominant
C2+ position: Mg dominant
C3+ position: Fe dominant
W position: (OH) dominant
System:Monoclinic
Member of:Taramite Group > Sodium-Calcium Amphibole Subgroup > w(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group > Amphibole Supergroup
Name:Named for the group type locality, Walitarama, Mariupol, Ukraine.

Taramite was originally defined with Fe2+>Mg in the C2+ posision, but this was changed in the 2012 amphibole nomenclature. The mineral defined as Ferri-taramite in this nomenclature was named ferri-magnesiotaramite pre-2012.


The taramite group is in the 2012 nomenclature defined with C(Al+Fe3++2Ti)>1,5 apfu, whereas the pre-2012 definition used the T position, i.e 5,5 < Si < 6,5 apfu. This redefinition does not change the formula, but some amphiboles qualifying as taramite pre-2012 will now be ferri-katophorite. Since the content of the C3+ position was not part of the pre-2012 definition, it was often omitted in the presentation of data,
