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 only available as 3" x 2" pieces & are supplied in a labelled card tray.
