Abstract

The surface area of anthophyllite asbestos variants with different stages of fiber development is found to be not proportional to the fineness of the fibrils. Coarser variants have transitional pores whereas the asbestiform is microporous. HRTEM images show structural intergrowths of $Mg(OH)_2$ in an anthophyllite lattice, whereas the intergrowths are absent in the asbestiform anthophyllite. Conversion of brucite intergrowth into a noncrystalline phase results in the generation of transitional pores.
