Caption: Veins of asbestos transecting each other in serpentinite rock. Asbestos, also known as chrysotile, is a mineral formed by magnesium silicate. Serpentinite is a metamorphic rock formed when igneous rocks are oxidized and hydrolyzed by water. Asbestos has a fibrous makeup, and the fibers or dust of it can cause lung cancer when inhaled
