System:MonoclinicColour:nd
Lustre:VitreousHardness:5 - 6
Member of:Magnesium-iron-manganese Amphibole Subgroup > w(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group > Amphibole Supergroup
Name:Originally named mangan-cummingtonite in 1966 by Hugo Strunz in allusion to its composition, containing MANGANese, and its relationship to Cummingtonite.

In order to better distinguish between amphibole end-member member compositions, the CNMNC has decided to rename manganocummingtonite. The name is not yet (Nov 2012) decided.
