[Ca4Si6O17 · 2H2O]·(Ca·3H2O)
White, light pink
Named after its discovery locality, Tobermory, Isle of Mull, Scotland.
There are three structural variants known: Tobermorite-9 Å (= Riversideite), Tobermorite-11 Å (= Tobermorite sensu stricto) and Tobermorite-14 Å (= Plombièrite).
"Tobermorite-10 Å" is Oyelite.

Some specimens of Tobermorite-11 Å shrink on dehydration and are called "normal tobermorite", while others do not shrink and are therefore called "anomalous".

The structure contains composite layers consisting of infinite sheets of (CaO7) polyhedra, to both sides of which wollastonite-type dreier single chains of (SiO4) tetrahedra are attached, running along the b-axis. Those layers are stacked along the c axis and linked by Si-O-Si bonds between the single chains in adjacent layers, forming dreier double chains whose individual strands belong to different layers. The open channels running along the b axis between the layers are occupied either by water molecules, resulting in the formula Ca4(H2Si6O17)·5H2O (anomalous tobermorite) or by both water molecules and Ca2+ ions, resulting in the formula Ca4.5(HSi6O17)·5H2O (normal tobermorite). Upon heating, the water molecules are lost, and the structure is rearranged in order to fulfill the coordination requirements of the interlayer calcium ions. The structure of clinotobermorite, which also shrinks upon heating, is very closely related to that of normal tobermorite (Merlino et al., 2001).

Tobermorite has been redefined by IMA in 2014 as two minerals: tobermorite and kenotobermorite.

NOTE: All localities listed here under "tobermorite" should be checked if they are to be assigned to tobermorite or kenotobermorite

May appear visually similar to Tacharanite.

The CSH-phases (calcium-silicate-hydrate phases) in hardened cement mostly consist of tobermorite-like phases, often poorly crystalline.
