5832/5831, the chlorisma, is an exceptionally small 17-limit unnoticeable comma of less than 0.3 cents. It is the difference between 18/17 and 343/324. Tempering it out equates a stack of three 7/6 subminor thirds with a stack consisting of an 18/17 lesser septendecimal semitone and a 3/2 perfect fifth, that is, a 27/17 quasi-tempered minor sixth.

In terms of commas, it is the difference between the palingenetic comma (1701/1700) and the breedsma (2401/2400), as well as the difference between the squbema (729/728) and the horizon comma (833/832).

In Sagittal notation, this is the default comma represented by two tinas.
