The sadanagaite group minerals are defined as with 0,5 < A(Na+K+ 2Ca) where Na or K is dominant, and with 1,5 < C(Al+Fe3++2Ti), where Al or Fe3+ are dominant. The W position may contain (OH),F or Cl.

Sadanagaite is defined with
A position: Na dominant
C2+ position: Mg dominant
C3+ position: Al dominant
W position: (OH) dominant.
System:MonoclinicColour:black, dark brown
Hardness:6
Member of:Sadanagaite Root Name Group > Calcium Amphibole Subgroup > w(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group > Amphibole Supergroup
Name:Named for Ryoichi Sadanaga (b. 1920), Professor Emeritus of the University of Tokyo.

Sadanagaite was first described as a new silica-poor amphibole(IMA1980-027), published by Shimazaki et.al(1984). It was redefined in the 1997 amphibole nomenclature (Leake et.al 1997). The original definition of sadanagaite has K>Na in the A position, this was reversed in 1997. It should also be noted that there is a probable typo in the 1997 nomenclature report, defining sadanagaite with Fe3+>Al in the formula, which has led some authors to use the term aluminosadanagaite (see Nikandrov et.al. 2001).

Sadanagaite was again redefined in the 2012 amphibole nomenclature to be the Na, Mg and Al dominant member of the sadanagaite group. (Hawthorne et al. 2012)

Consequently, the material originally described as sadanagaite in 1984, became potassic-sadanagaite in 1997 and potassic-ferro-sadanagaite in 2012.

Na and Fe2+ dominant material described as sadanagaite between 1997 and 2012 are now (2012) ferro-sadanagaite.

The material described by Banno et.al (2003) as magnesiosadanagaite was defined as sadanagaite in the 2012 ampibole nomenclature
