WHAT DOES TREMOLITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tremolite

Tremolite

Tremolite is a member of the amphibole group of silicate minerals with composition: ☐Ca2Si8O222. Tremolite forms by metamorphism of sediments rich in dolomite and quartz. Tremolite forms a series with actinolite and ferro-actinolite. Pure magnesium tremolite is creamy white, but the color grades to dark green with increasing iron content. It has a hardness on Mohs scale of 5 to 6. Nephrite, one of the two minerals of the gemstone jade, is a green variety of tremolite. The fibrous form of tremolite is one of the six recognised types of asbestos. This material is toxic and inhaling the fibers can lead to asbestosis, lung cancer and both pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma. Fibrous tremolite is sometimes found as a contaminant in vermiculite, chrysotile and talc.

Definition of tremolite in the English dictionary

The definition of tremolite in the dictionary is a white or pale green mineral of the amphibole group consisting of calcium magnesium silicate. When occurring in fibrous habit, it is used as a form of asbestos. Formula: Ca25Si8O222.
