Crystal System:
Named in 1946 by Nils Sundius for its relationship to Actinolite.
Note: Tremolite is defined as having an Mg/(Mg+Fe2+) ratio ≥ 0.9; Actinolite has a ratio of 0.5–0.9 and Ferro-Actinolite has a ratio of less than 0.5.

Classification of Ferro-actinoliteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

9 : SILICATES (Germanates)
D : Inosilicates
E : Inosilicates with 2-periodic double chains, Si4O11; Clinoamphiboles

14 : Silicates not Containing Aluminum
22 : Silicates of Fe and Ca
