4096/4095, the schismina, is a 13-limit superparticular ratio of about 0.42 cents. It is the difference between the septimal comma (64/63) and the wilsorma (65/64), and between the septimal quartertone (36/35) and the tridecimal quartertone (1053/1024).

By tempering it out is defined the schisminic temperament, which enables the schisminic chords, the essentially tempered chords in the 21-odd-limit.

The name lends itself to the general interval size measure knowns as the mina. In Sagittal notation, 4096/4095 is the default comma represented by a mina or three tinas.
