The interval of 225/224, the septimal kleisma or marvel comma is a 7-limit superparticular ratio. It pops up as the difference between pairs of 7-limit ratios, for example as (15/14)/(16/15) or (45/32)/(7/5).
Another useful relation is as the difference between the 25/24, the classical chromatic semitone, and 28/27, the septimal third-tone. Hence, it is also the difference between 32/25 and 9/7, and between 75/64 and 7/6.
In terms of commas, it is the difference between 81/80 and 126/125 and is tempered out alongside these two commas in septimal meantone. In the 11-limit, it factors neatly into (385/384)(540/539).
Temperaments
Tempering out this comma alone in the 7-limit leads to the marvel temperament, which enables marvel chords. See marvel family for the family of rank-3 temperaments where it is tempered out. See marvel temperaments for a collection of rank-2 temperaments where it is tempered out.
Approximation
If we do not temper out this interval and instead repeatedly stack (and octave-reduce) it, we almost return to the starting point at the 311th step, meaning 311edo is practically a circle of 225/224's. Note that this is not true for 226/225 or 224/223, the adjacent superparticulars, as they accumulate too much error to close into a circle in 311edo.
Etymology
Marvel comma was named after the corresponding temperament, marvel, which was named by Gene Ward Smith in 2002–2003.
