|Defined as a an amphibole in the cannilloite group of the Calcium subgroup with Mg>Fe2+ and Al>Fe3+ in the C position and with (OH) as the dominant anion in the W position|

Hypothetical Clino-Amphibole. The type "cannilloite" was found to be fluorine rich and was renamed "Fluor-cannilloite." The IMA has retained the name and original formula, but it has not been found in nature yet.
