This page lists characters in the following Unicode block and provides information about them.
This is not authoritative, peer-reviewed information – these are just notes I have gathered or copied from various places.
We have usage data for the following 2 languages that use the Cyrillic script: Tamazight, Tachelhit.
If you click on any red example text, you will see at the bottom right of the page a list of the characters that make up the example.
To find a character by codepoint, type #char0000 at the end of the URL in the address bar, where 0000 is a four-figure, hex codepoint number, all in uppercase. Or type the character or the hex number in the Find control above.
To view this page as intended, you need a Tifinagh font. This page comes with a Noto Sans Tifinagh webfont. Click the blue vertical bar at the bottom right of the page to apply other fonts, if you have them on your system. For transcriptions I recommend the excellent and free Doulos SIL font. The large character in the box will not be rendered unless the webfont downloaded with the page or a system font has a glyph for it. (If there is no glyph and you want to see what it looks like, click on See in UniView.)
Information about languages that use these characters is taken from the list maintained for the Character Use app. The list is not exhaustive.
References are indicated by superscript characters. Wherever possible, those contain direct links to the source material. When such a pointer is alongside an arrow → it means that it's worth following the link for the additional information it provides. Digits refer to the main sources, which are listed at the bottom of a set of notes.
When you are using UniView and you turn on Show notes, UniView will pull in information about characters from this page.

U+2D7F TIFINAGH CONSONANT JOINER
Berber Tamazight text displays consonants with no intervening vowels by simply putting them side by side, eg. ⵡⴰⴷⴷⴰⴷ waddad.
Consonant clusters may, however, be displayed as ligated forms in Tuareg.u There are two ways to achieve this.
When a bi-consonant is considered obligatory, this character is added between the two consonants. If the font supports bi-consonant shapes, the joiner is not shown, but the consonants are ligated. If the font doesn't support the joiner, it should be displayed visually. The following shows examples of biconsonant conjuncts.
The second approach uses ZWJ [U+200D ZERO WIDTH JOINER] rather than the Tifinagh joiner, and serves as an optional hint to the font. The fallback is simply the two consonants side by side.
Old Tifinagh texts don't show gemination.
