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.

You know what happens with Tokyo drifting? It leads to bickering, which of course, leads to karate.

cummingtonite is pretty rare because most neolithic peoples would simply make the loser eat the cracker. only the forward thinking thought to bury it

The second worst part about being a geologist is how often you have to listen to a miner bang a member of the cleaning staff.
