Moore (1986) mentions amphibolitic "blocks" with Na-pyroxene replaced by barroisitic amphibole
in some samples.
forms of asbestos didn't stimulate those pathways in guinea pig cells, the researchers say.
McDonald et al (34) performed lung fiber analyses on 78 cases of mesothelioma and found that the risk of disease correlated with amphibole
fibers (amosite, crocidolite, or tremolite) that were 8.
In the studied rocks, such a texture can be represented by a model in the form of two mutually perpendicular systems of plane-parallel layers, each of which may be formed by systems of planar or chain minerals (mica, amphibole
The Amphibiolites texture is of the oriented grano-plastic type and green Hurnbland type Amphibole
crystals with specific orientation and elongation are seen in their mineralogy composition.
Crystallization conditions of the Wiborg rapakivi batholith, SE Finland: an evaluation of amphibole
and biotite mineral chemistry.
A major role of phlogopite, instead of amphibole
, is recognised for their mantle source (Ubide et al, 2011).
Objective: Our goal was to evaluate the hypothesis that rat models of cardiovascular disease with coexistent Fe overload would be increasingly sensitive to Libby amphibole
(LA)-induced subchronic lung injury.
Core and rim compositions were determined for 3 amphibole
grains and 3 plagioclase grains in a sample from the pluton (sample GM-2IVD-58).
Typical Machias Seal Island quartz monzodiorite contains strongly zoned plagioclase (50%), about 30% mafic minerals (biotite and amphibole
with relict cores of both orthoand clinopyroxene, and 20% interstitial quartz and orthoclase.
And then the alphabetized list, Amphibole
Group to Zircon, takes off.

The iron-formation also hosts amphibole
asbestos which was extensively mined in the past.
EPA has removed major sources of Libby Amphibole
(LA) asbestos in and around Libby and Troy.
The granite is composed of perthite quartz some plagioclase opaque oxide biotite and/or amphibole
and titanite whereas the quartz monzonite comprises perthite calcic oligoclase/andesine quartz and minor amount of mafic minerals similar to those of the granite.
