The principal minerals developed during serpentinisation are antigorite and lizardite.
MD simulations of water at the basal plane surfaces of kaolinite and antigorite performed using DL_POLY_214 software (Smith and Forester, 1996) suggest that the silica tetrahedral face 001 should be hydrophobic, similar to pyrophyllite and talc, see Figure 9.

There are two main families of asbestos: amphiboles (tremolite, actinolite, crocidolite) and serpentines (chrysorile, antigorite, lizard-ite).
The harzburgites consist of a groundmass of chrysotile, antigorite, chlorite and Fe-oxides, in which, under the microscope, are still recognizable: olivine (chiefly by its habit outlined by Fe-oxides); some crystals, but generally only relicts, of enstatite; rare grains of plagioclase; and in places grains of chromite.

A search through the recently computerized X-ray film archive (9-cm Debye-Scherrer camera) at the Mineralogical-Geological Museum in Oslo verifies that antigorite, clinozoisite, hematite, hornblende, hydrozincite, lollingite, nontronite, orthochrysotile, portlandite, and stevensite have also been identified from mines and prospects in the Kongsberg area.
In the antigorite structure, a misfit between the octahedral and tetrahedral layers is resolved by structural adjustments that result in the formation of structural waves with different periodicities.
