Formula is redefined in the 2012 amphibole nomenclature.
System:OrthorhombicLustre:Vitreous
Hardness:5½ - 6
Member of:Magnesium-iron-manganese Amphibole Subgroup > w(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group > Amphibole Supergroup
Name:Named as the sodium-bearing and ferrous iron-dominant orthoamphibole resembling gedrite.


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