'Calcium Amphibole Subgroup'
Formula: An(Ca2)(Z2+5-mZ3+m)(Si8-(n+m)Al(n+m))(OH,F,Cl)2
Description: Sadashivajah, M.S., and Naganna, C. (1964) published the amphibole from Jothvad Hill as winchite. Their analysis show some anomalies, as Ʃ(Si+Al) < 8, ƩC position<5 and ƩA position >1. Based on a high Ca content it is likely that the amphibole analysed by Sathe et. al (1965) belongs to the Calcium Amphibole Subgroup.

Based on a moderate Ca content and a high Na content it is likely that the amphibole analysed by Sathe et. al (1965) belongs to the Sodium-Calcium Amphibole Subgroup.
