Sean Fitzgerald of Scientific Analytical Institute, the scientist who conducted the tests, said he was shocked that he found tremolite
asbestos in every single product.
Asbestos (chrysotile, amosite, crocidolite, tremolite
, actinolite and anthophyllite).

Through X-ray diffraction analysis, the mineralogical composition and content of Three Gorges granite are approximately 20 percent biotite, 25 percent quartz, 45 percent feldspar, 5 percent tremolite
, and 5 percent others.
1997), the overall pale colour, relatively low SG and weak pleochroism corresponded to a member with a low iron content, and therefore suggested tremolite
, rather than actinolite, as the identity of this crystal.
Other potential environmental exposures are also undergoing investigations to assess exposures and potential health risks: These include naturally occurring asbestos and other EMP deposits in the United States such as tremolite
in El Dorado Hills, California (ATSDR 2015; U.
Castellanos and co-workers (personal communication) described in detail the characteristic mineral assemblages from reaction zones recognized in marbles, which include calcite + graphite [+ or -] quartz; calcite + diopside [+ or -] tremolite
[+ or -] epidote-group minerals [+ or -] muscovite; calcite + wollastonite + quartz + garnet + diopside; calcite + dolomite + Ti-clinohumite + diopside + forsterite + clinochlore [+ or -] graphite; calcite + forsterite + tremolite
; dolomite + calcite + clinochlore.
, actinolite, anthophyllite, crocodilite) collected from various projects and
21] Exposure to tremolite
asbestos or fibrous zeolite (erionite) in Southeast Turkey is well-documented.
These rocks in petrology studies have nemato-plastic texture and have been transformed into Tremolite
, Actinolite and Albite schist.
The rigid, stiff amphiboles are represented by five forms: crocidolite, amosite, anthrophylite, tremolite
, and actinolite.
High-temperature heat capacities and derived thermodynamic properties of anthophyllite, diopside, dolomite, enstatite, bronzite, talc, tremolite

Signed by former Health Minister Suleiman Franjieh and former Environment Minister Akram Chehayeb, the law bars the importing of Crocidolite, Amosite, Anthophyllite, Actinolite and Tremolite
but allows a common asbestos called Crysotile, known as white asbestos.
Amphibole fibers (crocidolite, tremolite
, anthrophylite and amosite) are mainly used as fire resistant application.
