Chrysotile (TL)
Formula: Mg3(Si2O5)(OH)4
Localities: Reported from at least 14 localities in this region.
Description: Whereas chrysotile (asbestos) has been known since ancient times from many localities, specimens from the Bell mine, one of the oldest mines in the Thetford Mines area (in operation since 1877), have been the subjects of most of the early structural studies, from which the chrysotile nomenclature was defined. These investigations identified clinochrysotile (Whittaker 1956a), orthochrysotile (Whittaker 1956b) and parachrysotile (Whittaker 1956c) from the Bell mine, which is the type locality for all of them. These were recognized as independent mineral species by the IMA for more than five decades. The three species were demoted to “polytypes or crystallographic variants of chrysotile” (Burke 2006), which is the valid replacement for the three. Because of this, the Bell mine the former type locality for all three, is the default type locality for chrysotile.

Hydromagnesite ?
Formula: Mg5(CO3)4(OH)2 · 4H2O
Description: Aug 2, 2012 From Maggie Wilson - We acquired a specimen labelled hydromagnesite from a dealer several years back. Yesterday, we tested the material in HCL and it dissolved but did not fizz. From Laszlo: "Scolecite is more likely to dissolve than tobermorite and since it is on stilbite (if I recall correctly) it is likely scolecite. There is okenite there as well. The first time we collected at Mine Lac d'Amiante, we found some white fibrous material and the "knowledgeable" collectors in our group declared it hydromagnesite. This was in 1993, ever since then I have been looking for hydromagnesite from that mine. Most of the hydromagnesites sold by collectors and dealers that I have come across turned out to be zeolites (scolecite mostly) and also tobermorite. In fact I am still looking for confirmed hydromagnesite from the area as I am trying to archive the minerals found in different mines in the area. I assume that your specimen is from Mine Lac d'Amiante, which apparently is in St-Joseph-de Coleraine, although everybody including myself thought it was in Black Lake."
