"Mountain wood", a morphological variant ofanthophyllite, occurs in the Holenarasipur asbestos mines. High-resolution transmission-electron microscope (HRTEM) images of mountain wood show intimate brucite-anthophyllite intergrowths. Partial dissolution in dilute acids indicates that the intergrown hydroxide may be Fe-containing brucite. Coexisting anthophyllite asbestos does not show the brucite intergrowths, whereas both the anthophyllites have chain-width disorder.
