, chlorite and talc formed at the expense of primary olivine and pyroxene that are not preserved.
crocidolite, anthophyllite, tremolite, actinolite
, amosite, chrysotile).
In the chlorite rock it is observed to a great extent, because actinolite
is not formed in this stone and we can conclude that the rock still is not reached at the green sheet mass (figure 13).
Non-metallic minerals are apatite, quartz, hornblende, actinolite
, epidote, chlorite, Saussure, pomegranate.
The rocks correspond to actinolite
schists and chlorite schists (Figure 3a and 3b) with mineral assemblages as follows: actinolite
+ chlorite + quartz + plagioclase (albite) + epidote minerals [+ or -] muscovite [+ or -] calcite.
This area is blessed with unlimited and heavy deposits of precious and semi-precious stones, precious and semi-precious metals, and industrial stones like Ruby, Gold, Topaz, Aquamarine, Tourmaline, Epidote, Paragasite, Zircon, Actinolite
, Lead, Moonstone, Himalayan Quartz, Emerald, Marble, Granite, Feldspar, Mica, Calcite, Feldspar, Antimony, Graphite, Alum, Coal, Copper, Barite, China Clay etc".
The rigid, stiff amphiboles are represented by five forms: crocidolite, amosite, anthrophylite, tremolite, and actinolite
And finally, Tremolite, Actinolite
, and Anthophyllite asbestos are found occasionally in industrial or commercial products.
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.
The Chim Formation has been intruded by several porphyry aphosis which are commonly sericite, more rarely epidote and magnetite altered) Propylitic alteration in the Chim Formation shales is commonly green chlorite, with actinolite
and magnetite identified at the bottom of the hole.
Higher grade rocks contain actinolite
and epidote indicative of greenschist- facies conditions.
4) The principal varieties of asbestos are chrysotile, a serpentine mineral, and crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, and actinolite
, all of which are amphiboles.
