The six asbestos minerals recognized by the government are: – tremolite asbestos – actinolite asbestos, – anthophyllite asbestos, – chrysotile asbestos, – amosite asbestos, – crocidolite asbestos. These six types are broadly classified into two groups: 1 Serpentine group consisting only of the chrysolite asbestos , 2 Amphibole group consisting of the remaining five different asbestos. The difference between these two main groups is in their physical structure, the serpentine group is made up of minerals that have a layered form and curly fibers while the amphibole group contains minerals that have straight fibers with a chain-like structure.
