1029/1024, the gamelisma, is a 7-limit (also 2.3.7 subgroup) small comma measuring about 8.4 cents. It is the amount by which a stack of three 8/7s falls short of 3/2. Tempering out this comma for the 2.3.7 subgroup leads to slendric temperament. In addition to that the perfect fifth is split into three equal parts, the Pythagorean limma (256/243) is also so split, one for 64/63~49/48 and two for 28/27. It therefore provides the little interval known as quark.
