Cummingtonite is a metamorphic amphibole with the chemical composition (Mg,Fe)7Si8O22(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 was first discovered in 1824 near the town of Cummington, Massachusetts, and it is from this town that the mineral takes its name.[1][2] It is also found in Sweden, South Africa, Scotland, and New Zealand.
