https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cummingtonite

quote:

Cummingtonite is a metamorphic amphibole with the chemical composition (Mg,Fe2+)2(Mg,Fe2+)5Si8O22(OH)2, magnesium iron silicate hydroxide.

Monoclinic cummingtonite is compositionally similar and polymorphic with orthorhombic anthophyllite, which is a much more common form of magnesium-rich amphibole, the latter being metastable.

Cummingtonite shares few compositional similarities with alkali amphiboles such as arfvedsonite, glaucophane-riebeckite. There is little solubility between these minerals due to different crystal habit and inability of substitution between alkali elements and ferro-magnesian elements within the amphibole structure.

Cummingtonite was named after the town of Cummington, Massachusetts, where it was discovered in 1824.

Also it sounds like "cumming tonight" as one might say when planning to achieve sexual release later this evening, yet it is simply a mineral named after Cummington, MA, the site of its discovery, lending an unintentional humor to its name.

It's also a kind of asbestos. So be careful, cummingtonite could be dangerous if you get it inside you.
