An amphibole ( IMA 2009-034) with the empirical formula (Na0.72K0.29) (Na1.85Ca0.15)(Mg1.30Fe2+2.35Mn2+0.02Fe3+0.52Al0.01Ti0.75Li0.10)(Si7.99Al0.01)O22(O1.16F0.25OH0.59)was originally named ferro-obertiite by Hawthorne et al (2010). It was re-named ferro-ferri-obertiite in 2012 to align the use of pre-fixes in the obertiite root name minerals with the general amphibole nomenclature rules.
