Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [623, 2359, 3227, 3661, 1939, 3017, 889] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [155, 865, 1555, 2125, 2825]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 623 is 3785
