Actinolite is a green, fibrous amphibole silicate mineral in the asbestos group. Here it is embedded within Talc which is a hydrated magnesium silicate. These specimens are particularly striking with the darker green fibrous Actinolite crystals scattered within the contrasting pale green or white Talc which makes up the largest portion of the samples. They were collected by our staff from near Mo i Rana, in the Helgeland region of Nordland, Norway. Specimens are supplied in a labelled card tray.
Please note that actinolite is an asbestos mineral and should therefore be handled with care, specimens should not be broken and care should be taken to avoid disturbing the fibres. By purchasing this product you confirm that you are over the age of 18.
