Caption: Asbestos crystals. Asbestos refers to six natural silicate minerals, divided between the serpentine and amphibole classes. All have a typical appearance of thin, fibrous crystals. The different forms of asbestos differ in their composition and the health hazard they pose when inhaled. Asbestos has been widely used for its excellent insulating and heat-resistant properties.
