Clinochrysotile

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Colour:
Pale green to white, also yellow to brown, light gray.
Lustre:
Resinous, Greasy, Silky
Hardness:
2½ - 3
Specific Gravity:
2.53-2.55
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in 1843 by Franz von Kobell from the Greek chrysos - "gold" and tilos - "fiber." Re-named clinochrysotile by Eric James William Whittaker in 1951. This is by far the most common chrystotile structure and the most common commercial asbestos mineral. Chrysotile was reinstated as the species name of the chrysotile polytypes in 2006.
A polytype of Chrysotile

Clinochrysotile represents the monoclinic or triclinic polymorphs of chrysotile.
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 monoclinic (Warren & Bragg 1930), and triclinic (Padurow 1950, Whittaker 1956a) polymorphs from the Bell mine, which should be considered the type locality. Clinochrysotile is no longer a valid species (Burke 2006).
